1991-02-23 Chris Eubank w tdec 10 Dan Sherry, Conference Centre, Brighton, England - WBO. Referee: Frank Santore Jr. Scorecards: 95-93, 95-92, 93-95. Sherry (160) proved to be a difficult man to catch as he went backwards for much of the time, occasionally leaping in with counters as the champion chased shadows until the middle rounds. In the opener it had looked as though the upright Canadian would not be around for long when he found himself on the floor from a left jab. Cut by the left eye in the third, it did not stop Sherry from continuously dancing around Eubank (160) scoring points. He did so well that by the ninth it seemed as though there was little in it. Having opened up a bad cut on Sherry’s lower lip in that session, Eubank butted the challenger who dropped to his knees belatedly while hoping for a disqualification win. After the referee decided to deduct two points from Eubank instead of disqualifying him due to Sherry’s histrionics, when the challenger was deemed not fit to continue at 2.11 of the session it went to the cards.
