  • NABF Light Welterweight Title (Vacant title)


  • Unanimous decision for Spadafora, who wins the vacant NABF Super Lightweight title and gains a WBC top five world ranking.
  • Frankel wins two of the first three rounds as the busier fighter, as an aging Spadafora appeared to be ring rusty.
  • Spadafora wins the next seven consecutive rounds behind a consistent jab and impenetrable defense.
  • Spadafora goes to 48-0-1. Spadafora accomplished being undefeated in 48 or more bouts, a feat very rarely accomplished in professional boxing history since the Marquess of Queensberry rules were established in 1865, and gloves boxing were promoted by exhibition by English bare knuckles boxing champion Jem Mace between 1868 and 1909. Other professional fighters undefeated in 48 or more pro bouts were Jimmy Barry, Nino Benvenuti, Yory Boy Campas, Julio Cesar Chavez, Larry Holmes, Chris John, Nino LaRocca, Ricardo Lopez, Rocky Marciano, Dariusz Michalczewski, Brian Nielsen, Ruben Olivares, and Willie Pep.
