The bout was stopped in the final round because of lack of combativeness. Ankrah was fined 10,000 pesetas and was only allowed to fight again in Madrid and its vicinity if he were fighting a Spaniard in a World or European title fight. Garcia was fined 5,000 pesetas and was suspended for 1 month.

Not clear for what title or eliminator. Surely not for the EBU title, Ankrah did not have the right citizenship.
