1986-10-25 Mike McCallum w co 9 (15) Said Skouma, The Zenith, Paris, France - WBA. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Although the challenger made a reasonable start when taking the fight to McCallum (154) in the first three rounds, it soon became apparent in the fourth that his days would be numbered. Stepping it up, McCallum began to smash in fast, accurate punches that hurt Skouma (153¾) and opened up a deep cut over his right eye. Thereafter, it was all McCallum, who handed out a boxing lesson despite losing a point in the eighth when going low. Cruising into the ninth, McCallum had Skouma at his mercy before crashing in a right to the jaw to send the latter downwards to be counted out on the 2.25 mark.
