1987-02-21 Carlos De Leon w rsc 4 (12) Angelo Rottoli, Sports Palace, Bergamo, Italy - WBC. Referee: Franz Marti. Being cut over the right eye so early ruined any hopes of victory the challenger may have had, and with De Leon (188¼) concentrating on the injury there was little chance of a distance fight. At the end of the third the doctor allowed Rottoli (189½) one more round, but with De Leon totally in control and the wound pouring blood the referee stopped the contest after the session ended.
