1992-09-04 Johnny Bredahl w pts 12 Jose Quirino, National Football Stadium, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBO. Referee: Paul Thomas. Scorecards: 118-111, 119-110, 118-110. With his brother, Jimmi, defeating Daniel Londas for the WBO junior lightweight title, when Bredahl beat Quirino the brothers became the first in boxing history to win world titles on the same day. Sticking to an immaculate jab-and-move routine while showing an assured defence, Bredahl (115) outboxed the bemused Quirino (114) round after round, the left jab always seeming to be in the champion’s face. In short, Quirino was unable to find an answer, having to rely on hooks and shorter punches, and was outscored comprehensively.
