1990-04-23 Paul Banke w rsc 9 Daniel Zaragoza, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: John Thomas. Having learned the lessons from their previous contest, Banke (122) upped his work rate and although behind on the scorecards at the stoppage he proved good value for his win. The action was fierce at times and Zaragoza (122), who was cut by an eye in the fifth, had plenty of success before Banke finally did what he had been threatening to do all night. Although Zaragoza did well in the eighth with accurate counter punching, Banke accelerated in the ninth to drop the champion twice before the referee called a halt at 2.51 of the session.
