1993-12-17 Virgil Hill w pts 12 Guy Waters, Municipal Auditorium, Minot, North Dakota, USA - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 120-108, 119-110, 120-108. Having been out of the ring for some 14 months was not the best preparation for the challenger, who was outspeeded and outboxed throughout as Hill (175) showed his class. With both men being counter punchers there were few thrills, but Waters (173½) manfully stuck to his task despite having difficulty with his nose from the third round onwards. There were no knockdowns.
