Joe Bugner stopped West Turner, of the United States, in the third round of their 10-round heavyweight bout in Perth, Australia yesterday. Bugner, the former European, Commonwealth and British heavyweight champion, returned to the ring last September after an eight-year absence. The 45-year-old now hopes to fight Scott Welch, the British and Commonwealth champion, for the latter title in March.

Mike Tyson is set for a world heavyweight title defence in June if he beats Britain's world champion, Frank Bruno, at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, on 16 March. The date set by Don King, Tyson's promoter, is 22 June and would reportedly match Tyson against either Bruce Seldon, the World Association champion, or whoever holds the disputed International Federation title at the time.
