Clinging on like a limpet the challenger came to survive as long as he could, but against a fearsome hitter such as Fenech (125½), who made the body his target, it was only temporary respite. Eventually, Navarro (126) was dropped, going to the floor three times in the fourth round, before he was belted around the ring unmercifully and defenceless prior to being rescued by the referee at 1.41 of the fifth.
