1993-12-18 Michael Nunn w pts 12 Merqui Sosa, Cuauhtemoc Stadium, Puebla, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Julio Alvarado. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-112, 116-112. Unable to initially make the weight and fighting at altitude, the southpaw champion was thought to have a hard fight on his hands, but he turned in a top-class display when outscoring the hard-hitting Sosa (165½). Prior to the contest, the Dominican was seen as a danger man, but Nunn (168) never gave him a chance and after the opening six rounds when Sosa got through with body punches he dominated the action. Docked a point for carrying on after the bell to end the tenth, Sosa fought desperately in the last two sessions, swinging wildly with both hands, but Nunn beat him to the punch with sharp jabs and good movement to well earn the verdict.
