1987-01-31 Gilberto Roman w rsc 9 (12) Antoine Montero, Zenith Theatre, Montpelier, France - WBC. Referee: Angelo Poletti. Taking control from the third round, Roman (114¾) opened a cut over the challenger’s right eye after consistently countering a man who continued to come forward round after round despite being picked off. In the eighth, Montero (115) was driven back as Roman finally made plans to finish for the night, and although the former made it to the end of the session he was under fire when the referee rescued him after 34 seconds of round nine.
