2004-07-30 Nelson Dieppa w pts 12 Ulises Solis, Freedom Hall, Louisville, Kentucky, USA - WBO. Referee: William Clancy. Scorecards: 114-114, 120-108, 120-108. Although the champion made the better start, using the jab and slipping right hands in while Solis (107¾) looked to jab and counter with left hooks, the fight soon became a negative affair with very few punches landing. It was only in the 12th, when Solis was fading, that Dieppa (108) came alive with solid right hands over the top, the former being cut over the left eye in the last 30 seconds. According to the report in Boxing News the two judges who gave Dieppa every round were way out and either man could have been given the decision, it being that close.
