1988-11-07 Sugar Ray Leonard w rsc 9 Donny Lalonde, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Also billed for the vacant WBC super-middleweight title, Lalonde, who entered the ring at 167lbs (one pound inside the limit) should not have been forced to put his 175lbs crown on the line at the same time. See under Super Middleweight Division for a report of the fight. The situation went some way to righting itself when Leonard relinquished the WBC light-heavyweight title following the fight in order to concentrate on defending his lighter belt.
