1985-10-12 Dodie Boy Penalosa w rsc 3 (15) Yani Dokolamo, PI Coliseum, Jakarta, Indonesia - IBF. Referee: Lucien Joubert. Making his first defence, Penalosa (105) proved far too powerful for Dokolamo (114), known as ‘Little Hagler’, knocking him down three times in the first round, once in the second and once in the third, the last time seeing the Indonesian rescued by the referee in the act of rising on the two-minute mark. Despite hurting the champion occasionally, Dokolamo continuously ran into punches, especially heavy rights to the jaw, and although it was exciting while it lasted it was just a matter of time.

Penalosa forfeited IBF recognition immediately after he had challenged Hilario Zapata for the WBA flyweight title on 5 July 1986.
