1991-11-29 Buddy McGirt w pts 12 Simon Brown, Mirrage Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 119-108, 117-110, 117-110. Gliding in, getting his punches off and moving away from the champion before he could be caught, McGirt (145) boxed brilliantly, especially up until the sixth when he was forced to take left hands to the body. By this time Brown (147) was bleeding from a cut over the right eye, which was beginning to close, and was turning southpaw to try his luck, but in the tenth he was dropped by a left hook to the jaw before making it to the bell. The last couple of sessions saw Brown all at sea on occasion with the referee appearing to be ready to halt the fight, but it eventually ran its course.
