1969-10-04 [[Nino Benvenuti]] w disq 7 (15) [[Fraser Scott]], San Paolo Stadium, Naples, Italy - WORLD. Referee: Tonci Gilardi. It was never much of a fight as the wild Scott (158) was never really able to pierce the champion’s guard, merely charging in and being caught by sharp left jabs for his efforts. Although Scott was unbeaten in 17 contests, the only man of any note he had beaten was [[Denny Moyer]], and even that was an early cut eye stoppage. Warned and cautioned several times for butting, Scott was finally disqualified at 1.04 of the seventh after both men had fallen to the canvas having missing with jabs.
