1988-12-10 Azumah Nelson w rsc 3 Sidnei Dal Rovere, Sports Stadium, Accra, Ghana - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Taking time out to get the measure of his challenger, Nelson (128) barely raised a sweat before getting down to work in the third. The shortcomings of Dal Rovere (129½) were soon shown up when he was unable to sustain the punches coming his way, being eventually dropped by a powerful left, and although he beat the count the referee brought matters to a halt on the 2.04 mark.
