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, his corner retiring him during the interval between the fourth and fifth rounds.
