1993-02-20 [[Azumah Nelson]] w pts 12 [[Gabriel Ruelas]], Azteca Stadium, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-113, 115-115. In what was a hard-fought contest with both men doing good work in fits and starts, it was the champion’s flourish over the last three rounds which won the fight for him. It had been close, with Ruelas (129) throwing good punches from both hands, often shaking the champion up, and the bodywork of Nelson (128) eventually taking its toll on the Mexican, who complained bitterly at the finish that he had been robbed. Ultimately, it was Nelson’s greater experience that won the day for him, but it had been a real battle.
