1992-06-25 [[Buddy McGirt]] w pts 12 [[Patrizio Oliva]], Lincola Aquaflash, Naples, Italy - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 118-111, 116-112, 118-110. Making his first defence, against an awkward, long-armed opponent, McGirt (144) eventually decided that his best form of attack was to work the body and once he had made that decision he quickly took charge. The taller man of the two, Oliva (146¼) had certainly made life difficult for McGirt with his holding tactics, but apart from a bad moment in the eighth round when he was hurt by a right to the head the champion was rarely worried. By the halfway stage McGirt was hammering away at Oliva’s body and in the 11th he had the latter in some trouble before coasting through the 12th to a well-earned points win.
