1987-10-02 Gianfranco Rosi w pts 12 Lupe Aquino, Sports Palace, Perugia, Italy - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-114, 118-113. Using the ring well and showing great judgement, the challenger made Aquino (154) look clumsy at times as he jabbed, countered and often had the better of matters on the inside with right uppercuts through the middle. There was no doubting that Aquino was the bigger puncher of the pair, but he had difficulty in finding the target on a regular basis and only threw one punch at a time while Rosi (153½) was always prepared to work. Having overcome a bad cut on his right eye, suffered in the fourth round, Rosi went on the attack in the 11th and 12th, punching it out with Aquino and forcing him up against the ropes to earn an ovation at the final bell.
