1991-07-20 Charles Williams w co 3 Vincent Boulware, Ariston Theatre, San Remo, Italy - IBF. Referee: Joe O’Neil. Moving at speed, the champion soon had Boulware (173¼) where he wanted him and the opening two sessions saw the latter backed against the ropes where he was forced to take a mixture of heavy blows to head and body. At the start of the third round Williams (174¼), carrying a cut over his right eye, began to open up with body shots and Boulware, despite hitting back, was eventually dropped by two short rights. On getting back into the fray Boulware was given no respite and following some heavy punches to the head he dropped down to be counted out with 11 seconds of the round remaining.
