1989-09-09 [[Kenny Mitchell]] w pts 12 [[Simon Skosana]], Roberto Clemente Stadium, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBO. Scorecards: 119-114, 119-110, 119-113. Dominating the fight, the champion, despite being cut over the left eye, had it all his own way as Skosana was caught time and again with all kinds of punches and seemed unable to get going. It soon became obvious that Mitchell was just too strong and too persistent for Skosana, who suffered a badly cut right eye in the sixth, and whatever the latter tried was in vain as he stumbled to clear-cut points defeat.
