1987-07-31 Brian Mitchell w rsc 14 (15) Francisco Fernandez, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Eddie Eckert. Despite being in charge with non-stop pinpoint left jabs throughout, the champion stood up to Fernandez (129) in the early rounds and even mixed it before being shaken in the ninth by a terrific body shot. Following that, Mitchell (129½) then went back to his tried and trusted jab and by the 11th was using Fernandez’ head like a speedball. In the 13th, Fernandez, pinned on the ropes and being picked off clinically, then suffered attacks to both head and body that left him in a daze before much of the same in the 14th session saw the referee come to his rescue with 1.06 on the clock.
