    Background: CASAVATORE, NEAR NAPLES, ITALY

    Italian boxer Alfredo Raininger lost his European Junior Lightweight crown to Jean Marc Renard of Belgium at Casavatore, near Naples on April 12. The fight went the whole distance, but Renard won with a unanimous decision. Raininger, who captured the title in September 1983, scored with some close inside punching up to the ninth round. But Renard began to push him onto the ropes and, by the eleventh round, established clear superiority with a series of hooks which kept Raininger on the defensive. In the 12th and final round, the Italian was knocked to the canvas and it was clear he was nearing the end of his endurance. Just before the final bell, he received a standing count after looking shaky on his feet. When the unanimous verdict was announced in Renard's favour, he made no attempt to hide his delight. The Belgian had gone into the fight with a record of 19 wins and two losses, while Raininger had achieved 28 victories and two losses.
