1986-04-19 Lee Roy Murphy w co 9 (15) Dorcey Gaymon, The Casino, San Remo, Italy - IBF. Referee: Joe Santarpia. Defending his title on foreign ground, Murphy (189), whose left eye was swollen early on, bided his time and allowed Gaymon (188½) to make the running right through to the eighth. The third had been a big round for Gaymon, but he had been unable to build on it and coming into the ninth both men were level on the scorecards. It was then that Murphy got down to business and at 2.31 of the session Gaymon was counted out after being flattened by a left-right to the head.
