2003-03-22 Cory Spinks w pts 12 Michele Piccirillo, The Casino, Campione D’Italia, Italy - IBF. Referee: Mario Malanti. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-111, 115-113. Dominating from the opening bell with the southpaw jab, the tricky challenger proved too awkward and too slick for Piccirillo (146½) this time round when setting a very fast pace. Although Piccirillo occasionally connected with solid right crosses he was being outworked by Spinks (146¼) and although the Italian came on strong in the last few sessions it was a matter of too little, too late. On winning the title, Spinks emulated his father (Leon) and uncle (Michael), who were also world champions.
