1986-06-22 Azumah Nelson w rsc 10 (12) Danilo Cabrera, Hiram Bithorn Stadium, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Jesus Arias Torres. Despite making a fight of it for the opening four sessions, the challenger was soon in trouble as Nelson (125½) began to open up in the fifth, scoring repeatedly with powerful left hooks and rights to head and body. Cabrera, to his credit, still posed problems but lacked the power of Nelson. In the tenth, Cabrera (125), cut inside the mouth and under the right eye, was put down by a powerful overarm right and, although regaining his feet at the count of ‘eight’, he was rescued by the referee on the 2.31 mark when deemed to be in no position to continue.
