1989-02-25 [[Elly Pical]] w pts 12 [[Mike Phelps]], National Football Stadium, Singapore - IBF. Referee: Lucien Jubert. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-115, 117-115. Badly cut on the temple in the third round, Phelps (115) gamely fought on. Although setting up attack after attack, Phelps lacked the power to damage Pical (115), who soon built up a solid lead with quick counters. There were no knockdowns, just plenty of close-range hitting to excite the fans, but due to the challenger’s toughness Pical’s much vaunted left failed to make a dent.
