1994-09-17 Frankie Randall w pts 12 Juan Martin Coggi, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Scorecards: 115-109, 116-108, 116-108. After both men were floored in the opening two rounds, Coggi (140) in the first by a left hook and Randall (140) in the second by a southpaw left, the latter settled down to put points in the bag when working from head to body. Randall was certainly beginning to get to the champion, who was again dropped in the fifth and sixth, and it was only Coggi’s defensive skills that kept him going. With his left eye badly swollen by the ninth it looked to be curtains for the Argentinian, but he kept going and put in a storming 11th to no avail as Randall cruised to victory.
