1992-04-09 Gianfranco Rosi w rsc 6 Angel Hernandez Gonzalez, Sports Palace, Celano, Italy - IBF. Referee: Dale Grable. Making his 11th title defence, with Rosi (153¼) in command, by the fourth round his combinations to head and body had already started to wear Hernandez Gonzalez (152½) down. To his credit, Hernandez Gonzalez was always looking to get inside, but with Rosi’s left lead finding its mark time and again he had little luck. At this stage it was clear to see that the Spaniard was gradually having the fight knocked out of him. After being dropped in the sixth by a left hook, Hernandez Gonzalez got to his feet and immediately walked to his corner, an action that prompted the referee to call the fight off after 26 seconds of the session.
