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 traffic, it was no surprise when Fenech finally caught up with Richardson in the fifth. After being knocked down by a series of head punches, Richardson, cut on the left eye, walked to his corner to be retired at 1.29 of the session.
