1986-03-09 Donald Curry w co 2 (15) Eduardo Rodriguez, Will Rogers’ Coliseum, Fort Worth, Texas, USA - WORLD. Referee: Hubert Earle. Having unified the title, Curry (146¾) made a slow start and despite it being ruled a slip he even went down in the first as Rodriguez (146½) threw lefts and rights to head and body. More focused in the second, Curry started to back Rodriguez up, nailing him cleanly, and although the latter was throwing punches he was looking increasingly under pressure before two left hooks dropped him for the full count on the 2.29 mark.
