1987-04-25 [[Fidel Bassa]] w co 13 (15) [[Dave McAuley]], King's Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WBA. Referee: Nate Morgan. Having floored Bassa (109) three times, twice in a frantic ninth round, McAuley (111¾), despite being down himself and badly cut early on, must have thought the championship was his before running out of steam. It was in the 13th that Bassa, having paced himself well, found the punches to drop his rival in a heap, leaving the referee with the formality of counting him out at the 1.25 mark.
