1988-08-12 Jeff Fenech w rsc 5 Tyrone Downes, National Tennis Centre, Melbourne, Australia - WBC. Referee: Steve Crosson. Being cut over the left eye in round one did not stop the champion from powering on, and although Downes (123¼) was looking to inflict further damage he was badly shaken up in the third before being dropped twice in the fourth. At the start of the fifth, Fenech (126) fairly flew from his corner and a heavy right to the body dropped Downes for ‘nine’. Back on his feet, Downes tried to hit back before rights and lefts to the body dropped him for the fourth time, and although managing to rise at ‘five’ the referee intervened after 1.07.
