1992-04-25 [[Paul Hodkinson]] w rsc 3 [[Steve Cruz]], Maysfield Leisure Centre, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WBC. Referee: Rolando Barovecchio. Brushing his challenger aside with the minimum amount of effort, Hodkinson (125¾) knocked Cruz (126) down for ‘six’ in the opening session with a solid left hook and quickly hurt the Texan again before the round ended. Although Cruz got through the second it appeared obvious that he was not going to last much longer, and in the third after being hit by a terrific left to the body he next took a thundering left hook to the face which dropped him. After getting up at ‘six’, with Hodkinson ready to pounce, the referee had seen enough and called a halt after 1.05 of the round had elapsed.
