1985-02-20 Sot Chitalada w rtd 4 (12) Charlie Magri, Alexandra Pavilion, Muswell Hill, London, England - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. Despite Magri (111¾) making a great start (he was actually ahead on all three scorecards at the finish), Chitalada (111¾) stayed with him and was coming on strong in the fourth when picking his punches with accuracy before opening up an inch-long cut on the challenger’s left eyelid. The injury was far too bad for Magri to continue and his corner retired him during the interval between the fourth and fifth rounds.
