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. With the action being fierce at times, Zaragoza (122) 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. Zaragoza finished the fight with two swollen eyes, his face red and raw.
