1986-08-10 Carlos De Leon w rsc 8 (12) Michael Greer, Parking Lot, Santa’Alfio, Giardini Naxos, Sicily, Italy - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Fighting well for the opening seven rounds the challenger more than held his own with De Leon (188¼), hurting him with left hooks and scoring with the jab. He was also ahead on all three scorecards. It was only in the eighth that De Leon came to life, Greer (186¼) being pushed back to the ropes after he had been hurt by solid uppercuts to the jaw. At that stage of the contest, when it was clear that Greer was unable to fight back, the referee came to his aid at 1.45 of the session.
