1991-01-26 Robert Quiroga w pts 12 Vincenzo Belcastro, Sports Palace, Capo D'Orlando, Italy - IBF. Referee: Al Rothenberg. Scorecards: 117-110, 120-110, 114-115. Taking the fight to Quiroga (114½), the challenger certainly made it difficult for the American to work effectively, as he closed him down, roughed him up and robbed him of his finishing power. According to Dave Parris, the British judge, Belcastro (113¾) was in front at the final bell after pressuring his man successfully, but the other two judges disagreed, leaving the Italian to rue his bad luck.
