1993-07-10 [[Steve Robinson]] w co 9 [[Sean Murphy]], National Ice Rink, Cardiff, Wales - WBO. Referee: Roy Francis. Murphy (125¾) made a promising start against the new champion, forcing the action and outworking his man before being picked off by solid counters as the fight wore on. By the sixth, Robinson (126) had made up any leeway and was beginning to pick up the pace despite Murphy staying with him in the exchanges. The start of the ninth saw Murphy still battling away until a heavy right-left-right combination put him down. Although he got up he looked a spent force, and after a series of rights and lefts put him down again he mistimed the count, the fight ending with 1.40 on the clock.
