1990-03-14 [[Brian Mitchell]] w pts 12 [[Jackie Beard]], Sports Palace, Grossetto, Italy - WBA. Referee: Franco Priami. Scorecards: 120-112, 120-111, 117-113. Bearing in mind his vulnerability around the eyes, Mitchell (129) concentrated on an accurate left hand to outbox Beard (129) and although the latter had closed the distance by the third he still was not close enough to do any real damage. By the fifth Beard was running out of ideas, even though Mitchell’s eyes were puffing up, and apart from trying to mess up the champion’s rhythm, by mauling and leaning on he was doing very little in the way of scoring points. Meanwhile, Mitchell was outpunching Beard at the rate of three to one down the home stretch, as well as using his strength to keep the American pinned in to corners, and with no real resistance he motored to a clear win.
