1987-01-10 [[Patrizio Oliva]] w pts 15 [[Rodolfo Gonzalez]], Tenda Theatre, Agrigento, Italy - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. Scorecards: 147-142, 146-139, 145-141. Using his superior speed and an accurate left jab, Oliva (140) proved to be a cut above Gonzalez (138½) and he outboxed his rugged Mexican challenger in virtually all rounds bar the seventh when a big left hook had him down for the first time in his career. Although badly shaken Oliva picked himself up before eventually getting back into his routine and thereafter would offer Gonzalez only limited opportunities. However, spurred on by his success, Gonzalez came on much stronger after the seventh and despite not get getting close enough he made life more difficult for Oliva, who made it 47 victories from of 47 contests since winning the gold medal at the 1980 Moscow Olympics.
