1989-05-06 Francesco Damiani w co 3 Johnny Du Plooy, The Stadium, Syracuse, Sicilia, Italy - WBO. Referee: Tony Perez. Fighting to decide the inaugural WBO title, Damiani (234) took his time to get going but by the third round he was beginning to find the range with big lefts and rights. Du Plooy (210) was now under a fair amount of pressure from heavy right hands and he was eventually counted out at 1.24 of the session after being laid low by left hook that was followed by a right cross.
