1985-08-23 Jeff Fenech w rsc 3 (15) Satoshi Shingaki, Homebush Sporting Complex, Sydney, Australia - IBF. Referee: Jay Edson. A return match again saw Fenech (117½) getting off to a bright start against Shingaki (117), and a cracking left hook from the Aussie gashed the former champion’s right eye in the second round. Told that he would be given just a few minutes to see if he could turn things around, Shingaki was allowed out for the third session. However, when it became clear that he could not carry on for much longer he was pulled out by the referee on the advice of the ringside doctor at the end of the round.
