1985-09-06 Azumah Nelson w rsc 5 (12) Juvenal Ordenes, Tamiani Fairgrounds Auditorium, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Steve Crosson. Initially thought to be a tough fight for Nelson (126), it proved to be less than that as the champion took his time, making Ordones (126) miss before opening up towards the end of the fourth round. It was all over at 2.45 of the fifth, when the referee stopped the contest with Ordones out on his feet after Nelson had twice dropped him.
