1989-03-04 Virgil Hill w pts 12 Bobby Czyz, Civic Centre, Bismarck, North Dakota, USA - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-111, 119-110. Despite being comprehensively outboxed the challenger was at his most dangerous early on, dropping Hill (174½) with a cracking right to the jaw in the third round. Strangely ruled a slip, Czyz (174½) was unable to repeat the feat. Even though he caught Hill with the occasional right he was unable to follow up. Cut over the left eye in the seventh Hill never let it worry him, and although being made to work hard he continued to jab Czyz’s head back throughout the remainder of the contest
