1987-07-10 [[Jeff Fenech]] w rtd 5 (12) [[Greg Richardson]], Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - WBC. Referee: Larry Nadayag. Winning every round, Fenech (122) proved far superior to the outweighed Richardson (115¾), whose only course of action seemed to be to hold the champion’s left arm every time he was run to ground. All one way, it was no surprise when Fenech finally caught up with Richardson in the fifth, knocking him down with a series of head punches before the latter, cut on the left eye, walked to his corner to be retired at 1.29 of the session.
