Notes

  • Mugabi ranked number 1, Thomas number 2 for the title relinquished by Thomas Hearns.
  • Mugabi was leading on the cards of all judges but turned away from Thomas in round three after sustaining an orbital bone injury inflicted by a Thomas punch and Padilla stopped the bout. (The Square Ring).
  • Mugabi takes a brutal accidental thumb in his left eye and can't continue. In a strange twist, before fight Mugabi argued against using thumb tabbed gloves and sadly got his wish.
