1988-09-26 Jose Sanabria w rsc 10 Fabrice Benichou, Sports Palace, Noget Sur Marne, France - IBF. Referee: Dale Grable. With Sanabria (120¾) starting lethargically, Benichou (121¼), despite suffering damage under the left eye in the second round, had every chance when working well behind the left jab to send in solid blows to the body before the champion got going in the fourth. Although there were far more exchanges from then on, with Benichou still having the better of them, after the latter's left eye closed completely in the tenth the fight was stopped on the 2.50 mark.
