1994-12-17 Harold Grey w pts 12 Vincenzo Belcastro, Sports Palace, Cagliari, Italy - IBF. Referee: Ron Lipton. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-112, 113-114. Surviving a sixth-round knockdown from a right to the head, Grey (115) regained his composure to avoid the crude swings coming in from Belcastro (115) throughout the remainder of the contest to just about hold on to the title. It had been a close-run thing as the teak-tough gamester of a challenger bulled his way forward in an effort to negate the jab thrown from distance.
