1993-01-20 [[Gianfranco Rosi]] w pts 12 [[Gilbert Dele]], Sports Palace, Avoriaz, France - IBF. Referee: Robert Byrd. Scorecards: 116-111, 114-113, 112-114. In a return match brought about by dissatisfaction over the previous verdict, this time round there appeared to be no dissent as the champion outscored Dele (153½). Although there was never much between them, Rosi (151¾) controlled the fight by staying close to Dele and working the body, a tactic that saw the latter unable to land his big punches. In the tenth round, Rosi staggered Dele badly when catching him with a heavy right and although the latter was able to hang in for the remainder of the contest he was unable to turn things around.
