1993-01-13 Juan Martin Coggi w rsc 8 Morris East, The Superdome, Mar Del Plata, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Bernie Soto. Struggling to find a way through the former champion’s defence, East (139¾) was dropped by solid southpaw lefts to the body in the second and from there on in it was nearly all one way. Attacking the body throughout, Coggi (139¾) also made the head a target and whenever East tried to get into range he was generally countered over the top. Having had a point deducted for butting in the sixth, East made a big effort in the seventh and had Coggi stumbling around the ring, but that would be his last success. Regrouping during the interval, once Coggi went to work in the eighth it was all over on the 2.50 mark when a heavy left to the jaw sent East downwards and the referee stopped the fight immediately without even bothering to count.
