1998-03-14 Keith Mullings w rtd 5 Davide Ciarlante, Trump Taj Mahal Casino & Resort, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Larry O’Connell. Boxing in determined fashion the challenger gave Mullings (154) a run for his money before a broken nose and gashes under each eye saw him pulled out of the contest by his corner at the end of the fifth round. If the corner had not made that decision the referee certainly would have. Although Ciarlante (153¾) threw the greater volume to put himself level on the cards at the time of the finish, it was Mullings’ blows that carried the greater weight and proved to be more effective.
