1985-10-12 [[Azumah Nelson]] w co 1 (12) [[Pat Cowdell]], National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, England - WBC. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. With Nelson (125¾) being such a venomous puncher it was expected that the challenger would use the ring to pick up points and keep his distance, but it did not work out like that as Cowdell (125) took the fight to his rival from the opening bell. All Nelson had to do was to hold his ground and as Cowdell landed one jab too many he was caught by a left uppercut and dropped like a log to be counted out at 2.24 of the opening session.
