1989-12-09 [[Kamel Bou-Ali]] w rsc 8 [[Antonio Rivera]], Sports Palace, Teramo, Italy - WBO. Contested for the title vacated by [[John John Molina]], Bou-Ali walked straight out, tossing in left hooks, and towards the end of the round he had dropped Rivera. In the third, after both men had traded furiously, Rivera caught the Tunisian with a big left uppercut in the third and it was his turn to visit the canvas. It then became a war of attrition with Rivera looking the more controlled of the two.
