1989-10-13 Mark Breland w rsc 2 Mauro Martelli, Skating Palace, Geneva, Switzerland - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Back in action after a knee operation, Breland (146½) soon got his left jab working and had reddened the challenger’s face considerably by the end of the first round. Although Martelli (146½) had a reputation as a sound defensive boxer he seemed to have no defence against Breland’s whiplash punches and following a battery of blows to the head the Swiss-Italian, now cut under the left eye, was floored and stopped after 1.15 of the second session.
