1992-09-12 [[Michael Nunn]] w pts 12 [[Victor Cordoba]], Thomas & Mack Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 114-112, 114-113, 112-114. Making his first defence, Cordoba (168) appeared unlucky to have lost his title to fellow southpaw Nunn (168), especially after hurting the latter throughout the contest and knocking him down in the tenth with a solid left to the head. Several times earlier in the contest Nunn looked to be in trouble from body shots but he continued to fight back even if his punched did lack steam. By the ninth Cordoba seemed to be out of steam while Nunn was beginning to put his punches together. In that session however, Cordoba was deducted a point for a questionable low blow, an action that would ultimately cost him the title. Thereafter it was Nunn who was the busier and despite the knockdown did the better work in the last two sessions as Cordoba slowed, but the decision was far too close for comfort.
