1988-03-07 [[Jeff Fenech]] w rsc 10 (12) [[Victor Callejas]], Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Contesting the title vacated by [[Azumah Nelson]] and having moved up a weight division himself, Fenech (126) was good value for his victory despite breaking his right hand in the second round. Callejas (126), who was game enough, certainly hit Fenech with some good punches but the Aussie merely blinked, and after being down in the third and eighth the Puerto Rican continued to be put under the cosh until being rescued after 1.21 of the tenth session.
