1992-10-23 Manuel Medina w pts 12 Moussa Sangare, Sports Hall, Gravelines, France - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Scorecards: 116-113, 115-113, 114-114. There was never a great deal in this one, which saw the light-punching champion relying on two-fisted flurries to notch up the points against the heavier-punching Sangare (125¾). Possibly overawed, even though the man from Mali really did not get going until the third round he was not at his best until the eighth when he cut loose with uppercuts and hooks. By then, however, Medina (125½) was in front, and when cleverly covering up and working in close he did enough to preserve his lead.
