1989-10-27 Gianfranco Rosi w pts 12 Troy Waters, Sports Palace, St Vincent, Italy - IBF. Referee: Tony Orlando. Scorecards: 118-110, 119-113, 117-111. Having controlled the opening nine rounds as the challenger failed to get into the fight, it was only in the tenth that Rosi (153¼) came close to a setback after being caught by a big left to the head. Calling on all of his experience to get through, Rosi, cut over the right eye, boxed his way out of a tight spot but had to take further heavy shots on the way as the game Waters (153½) came on strong. Following the contest, Rosi stated that although he had tried to knock Waters out he had found him too tough a nut to crack and settled for the points.
