1985-07-21 [[Ubaldo Sacco]] w rsc 9 (15) [[Gene Hatcher]], Municipal Casino, Campione, D’Italia, Italy - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. In a return contest that was requested after Sacco (139) had gone close previously, this time round he made no mistake and was well on the way to winning before the champion was pulled out by the referee at 1.28 of the ninth when a bad cut over the left eye worsened. Although the opening four rounds had been closely fought, Sacco took charge in the fifth when meeting the aggression of Hatcher (140) with solid left-hand counters and big head punches, and forced a knockdown when the latter went down on one knee to gain respite. It was in the sixth that Hatcher was first cut over the left eye and while there were several exchanges which were bitterly contested it was Sacco who was getting into control mode and that was how it remained until the stoppage.
