2 December Jeff Fenech w pts 15 Jerome Coffee, Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 148-140, 146-141, 145-140. Forced to travel the distance for the first time in a meteoric pro career and despite scoring no knockdowns, Fenech (117) was good value for his points win over the tough Coffee (118). The American, who continuously held and spoiled, was by far the best opponent Fenech had met at that point in time, but the little Aussie came through like a real champion, outboxing and outfighting him in front of a rapturous crowd to prove a real threat to anyone at the weight.
