Line 1: Line 1:
2 December Wayne McCullough w rsc 8 Johnny Bredahl, King’s Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Although making a fair start over the first couple of rounds, the challenger was soon being hunted down and once McCullough (117½) found the range in the fifth it was just a matter of time. At that point, Bredahl (116¾) was hardly able to see out of his left eye and was literally running from McCullough, who sensed that victory was just around the corner. The contest was eventually called off at 1.55 of the eighth after Bredahl had failed to heed the referee’s earlier warning that he needed to start throwing punches or be turfed out.
