1999-12-17 [[Paul Spadafora]] w rsc 11 [[Renato Cornett]], David Lawrence Convention Centre, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - IBF. Referee: Rick Steigerwald. Taking time to work out Cornett (134), the champion made a slowish start before opening the latter up with the southpaw jab and left crosses in the third. Although it was beginning to look like a distance fight by the sixth, Spadafora (134¾) came to life in the seventh when it could be seen that Cornett was cut over the left eye. While Cornet was still proving a difficult target, Spadafora, despite winning every round, was unable to find the finishing blows and it was left to the referee to end matters after 52 seconds of the 11th when he decided that the challenger’s eye damage was too bad for him to continue.
