1983-03-15 [[Charlie Magri]] w rsc 7 (12) [[Eleoncio Mercedes]], The Arena, Wembley, London, England - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Always coming forward, never taking no for an answer, Magri (111½) maintained his attack from the opening bell when working both body and head and giving Mercedes (111½) no room to move. Ultimately, it was an accidental head clash that caused a deep cut over the champion’s left eye and led to him being pulled out by the referee at 1.14 of the seventh round, but by then he was already a beaten man.
