1988-03-26 Fidel Bassa w pts 12 Dave McAuley, King's Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 116-112, 114-113, 115-113. Wary of the power of McAuley (112), this time round Bassa (111¾) boxed mainly on the outside, piling up the points with left jabs and dancing out of range whenever the Irishman got set to land. Making an unsuccessful challenge, McAuley, who was down in the ninth round, also suffered a broken nose in the seventh.
