1989-11-08 Dave McAuley w pts 12 Dodie Boy Penalosa, Grand Hall, Wembley, London, England - IBF. Referee: Roy Francis. Scorecards: 119-113, 120-109, 113-119. Moving and jabing well, McAuley (112), despite picking up multiple facial cuts, outboxed the southpaw Penalosa (111½) comprehensively, regardless of what the Filipino judge arrived at. Although the challenger appeared to be the harder puncher of the two, he was unable to deliver more than one punch at a time.
