1987-12-19 Brian Mitchell w rtd  8 (12) Salvatore Curcetti, Sports Palace, Capo D'Orlando, Italy - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Cut over the left eye as early as the second round, Curcetti (128½) was unable to keep the stronger champion at bay for long enough periods and was well behind when he was half punched, half pushed to the floor in the seventh and forced to take a count. Mitchell (128¾), now sensing a finish, began to work the Italian over in the eighth and floored him with a solid blow to the body. At the end of that session, Curcetti, his face badly swollen, was retired by his corner during the interval.
