1994-01-29 Simon Brown w pts 12 Troy Waters, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Scorecards: 118-111, 116-112, 114-114. Following on from his upset victory over Terry Norris, it was something of a surprise when Brown (153) only outpointed the tough Waters (153) on a majority decision despite having many advantages. With so little action the early rounds were difficult to score, and it was only from the ninth onwards when Waters was tiring that Brown began to up the pace. Working well on the inside and turning southpaw in order to rest his left hand that had been damaged earlier, Brown kept the punches going regardless of his right eye being opened up in the 12th from an accidental head butt.
