1993-10-04 [[David Griman]] w pts 12 [[Alvaro Mercado]], Luis Ramos Gym, Puerta La Cruz, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Masakazu Uchida. Scorecards: 116-112, 117-113, 116-113. Making his second defence, Griman (112) had to be on his toes as Mercado (111¼), starting with great enthusiasm, threwing jabs and crosses as he pressed forward looking for openings. It was not until the fourth round that Griman got into his stride, and in the sixth he began to weaken Mercado at close quarters. Mercado was not yet beaten, coming back strongly in the ninth with heavy blows that almost knocked Griman over. Although Griman quickly recovered, from thereon he relied more on his technical ability to make sure that he was not caught off guard again.
