1985-02-16 Livingstone Bramble w pts 15 Ray Mancini, Lawlor Events Centre, Reno, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 143-142, 143-142, 144-143. Making his first defence, Bramble (133¾) got off to a fine start when he opened up a cut over the challenger’s right eye in the first round following a burst of orthodox jabs to the head. Although Bramble was dictating the fight Mancini (135) was always dangerous and never gave up trying, especially during  a spell in the sixth when the former was staggered and dazed by solid head punches. However, by the seventh Bramble was dictating matters once again and in the eighth Mancini picked up another cut, this time over the left eye. From thereon, despite Mancini giving it everything he had, Bramble appeared to be several steps ahead despite the judges’ cards showing only a round in it at the finish.
