1991-04-18 Chris Eubank w rsc 6 Gary Stretch, Olympia, Kensington, London, England - WBO. Referee: Tony Orlando. The tall southpaw challenger boxed extremely well for the opening five rounds, moving away from Eubank (160) before jumping in with solid right-lefts, and was ahead on all three cards. All that changed in the sixth. Coming out fast, Eubank got down to work immediately, hurting Stretch (159) with a big left before the latter was deducted a point for pushing his man to the floor. Back on the attack, Eubank knew that he had Stretch going and after dropping him twice in quick succession with a volley of blows to the head the fight was halted on the 1.16 mark with the latter leaning on the ropes in a helpless state.
