1994-01-29 [[Frankie Randall]] w pts 12 [[Julio Cesar Chavez]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 114-113, 116-111, 113-114. Although Randall (140) was forced to take plenty, especially downstairs, his ability to sustain that along with his movement and tremendous combinations enabled him to stay in a fight that virtually nobody gave him a chance of winning. Not only that, but he gave Chavez (140) more to worry about than any of his previous challengers had managed and things got even better for Randall in the seventh when the champion had a point deducted for going low. The next few rounds saw both men give and take before the fight was virtually decided in the 11th when Chavez had another point deducted for a further low blow and was then dropped by a right hand to the jaw. Getting back on his feet he tried to close Randall down, but was too tired to do any damage and the latter spent the final session avoiding trouble, knowing that the 11th round had been decisive.
