1992-11-28 Chris Eubank w pts 12 Juan Carlos Gimenez, G-Mex Leisure Centre, Manchester, England - WBO. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 118-110. Although Gimenez (168) absorbed the champion’s best punches and remained upright throughout, he was never in a fight that often appeared to be no more that a sparring session. Round after round Eubank (168) sent in powerful blows from either hand and even when he had Gimenez over in the fifth from a left hook it was ruled a slip. By the eighth, Gimenez was carrying a bad cut on the bridge of his nose, but he continued to assimilate Eubank’s best efforts, including several crunching right uppercuts to the jaw, right through to the end.
