1984-02-11 Thomas Hearns w pts 12 Luigi Minchillo, Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBC. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 120-109, 120-110, 118-109. Despite the challenger being game to the core, he lacked the power to really trouble Hearns (153¾) and that gave the latter an ideal platform on which to exhibit his skill, as well as keeping his suspect right hand under wraps. Minchillo (153), who finished with a badly swollen left eye, was always trying, but even when Hearns appeared to be tiring he couldn’t close him down and although he fought hard in the tenth and 11th he was a spent force in the final session.
