1993-01-30 Michael Nunn w pts 12 Victor Cordoba, The Pyramid, Memphis, Tennessee, USA - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Scorecards: 115-107, 120-106, 106-117. Having lost his title unluckily to Nunn (168) last time out, Cordoba (168) was expected to regain it in many quarters, but after being dropped twice in the second round and having four points deducted for low blows he was eventually beaten out of sight by his fellow southpaw. Allowed to take a bad beating in the second and constantly fouling, Cordoba should never have made it to the final bell, especially after putting Nunn down four times from low blows and continuing to go low right up to the end.
