1989-02-18 Simon Brown w rsc 3 Jorge Maysonet, Csamok Sports Hall, Budapest, Hungary - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Moving in on Maysonet (147) right from the opening bell, the champion gave the Puerto Rican no room in which to work and once he had got his left hook working the finish was imminent. Although Maysonet threw plenty of leather, landing with some decent shots on Brown (147), he was soon overwhelmed and was knocked down twice in the second round and twice more in the third before the referee moved in on the 2.01 mark to save him from taking further punishment.
