1993-06-07 Tommy Morrison w pts 12 George Foreman, Thomas & Mack Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 117-110, 117-110, 118-109. In a fight for the vacant title, Morrison (226) boxed a clever, tactical battle when using his speed to score points before moving away from real trouble against the much older Foreman (256). Even then Morrison was forced to endure some heavy hits when the men came together. Both Foreman and Morrison were tiring from their exertions by the eighth, and when the latter was hit low he was allowed to take time out. The remainder of the fight saw Foreman plodding after Morrison, who would occasionally jump in with fast blows before getting away. Although Foreman was deducted two points for low blows and lost the fight it was he who received the plaudits for his determined efforts to track Morrison down.
