1985-07-27 [[Dwight Muhammad Qawi]] w co 11 (15) [[Piet Crous]], Super Bowl, Sun City, South Africa - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. With not too much in it after eight rounds, the fight came to life when Qawi (189¼) hammered the champion all over the ring in the ninth but was unable to find a finishing punch. From thereon it was all downhill Crous (182), who was battered from pillar to post before being dropped by barrage of blows in the 11th and barely beat the count. There was to be no letup and as soon as Crous was allowed back into action he was sent crashing by a left-right combination and counted out at 1.47 of the session.
