    NINO BENVENUTI OF ITALY RETAINED THE EUROPEAN MIDDLE WEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN PASCAL DI BENEDETTO OF FRANCE RETIRED AFTER THE TENTH ROUND OF THE THEIR SCHEDULED FIFTEEN ROUND TITLE FIGHT IN ROME LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY).

    BLOOD FLOWED FROM THE NOSE OF DI BENEDETTO, 25, IN THE NINTH ROUND AND IT WAS CLEAR THAT HE WAS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE.

    BENVENUTI HOUNDED HIM AROUND THE RING HOPING TO FINISH THE FIGHT.

    THE FRENCHMAN, WHO HAD NOT LOST A SINGLE FIGHT BEFORE FRIDAY, GAMELY CARRIED ON IN THE TENTH ROUND.

    BUT AFTER RECEIVING HARD PUNISHMENT HE WENT BACK TO HIS CORNER AT THE END OF THE TENTH AND STAYED THERE.
