1991-07-13 [[Gianfranco Rosi]] w pts 12 [[Glenn Wolfe]], Main City Square Open Air Arena, Avezzano, Italy - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Scorecards: 118-109, 118-110, 119-109. Wolfe (153¼) started well enough when putting Rosi (153½) down with a left hook in the third round, but apart from a similar punch in the fifth that had the champion sagging at the knees, he failed to produce any further fireworks. Picked off by jabs, right hands and left hooks, Wolfe, who finished with both eyes badly swollen, was a demoralised figure in the latter stages as Rosi almost did as he pleased. While Wolfe never gave up trying to land a punch that would end the fight, Rosi was far too cute to be caught again and was content to box his way through to the final bell
