1990-10-13 [[Azumah Nelson]] w pts 12 [[Juan Laporte]], Entertainment Centre, Sydney, Australia - WBC. Referee: Malcolm Bulner. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-112, 115-113. Lacking a bit of sparkle from his earlier days, Nelson (129¼) still had too much for Laporte (130) despite being stunned by heavy punches in the fourth and seventh rounds. Boxing on the back foot with the jab being his key weapon, this was not the Nelson everyone had come to expect, but it was good enough to keep a man who lacked the necessary hand speed at arm's reach for most of the time in order to retain his title.
