1991-08-09 Bobby Czyz w pts 12 Bashiru Ali, Convention Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 120-108. Although his challenger was willing he was limited, and nervous about being butted Czyz (188) chose to box with caution throughout. Every round was virtually the same as Czyz jabbed away before driving in hooks to the body and right crosses to the head and while Ali (188) proved his durability he was unable to pose any danger. After winning by a shut-out scoreline, Czyz stated that he had decided against going for a stoppage in order to avoid being cut.
