1987-05-15 [[Kelvin Seabrooks]] w co 5 (15) [[Miguel Maturana]], Indian Bullring, Cartagena, Colombia - IBF. Referee: Al Rothenberg. Following the decision of [[Jeff Fenech]] to move up a weight division, these two were selected to contest the vacant title, Seabrooks (116) having to travel for the opportunity. Unfortunately for Maturana (116), who made a good start, he was caught heavily in the third round and took a count. Although he looked to have come back from that when fighting back, a cracking left hook put him down and out at 1.47 of the fifth.
