1989-02-21 Dennis Andries w rsc 5 Tony Willis, Convention Centre, Tucson, Arizona, USA - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. In a fight for the vacant title, and looking to get back his old belt, Andries (173) immediately chased down Willis (173½), throwing in punches from both hands and generally looking much stronger than his opponent. All the unbeaten Willis seemed able to do was to hold, it coming as no surprise when he was deducted a point at the end of the third. The fourth saw much of the same from Willis, and after being dropped by a left-right-left in the fifth he was deemed unable to carry on with ten seconds of the session remaining.
