1994-07-14 Anaclet Wamba drew 12 Adolpho Washington, Sporting Club, Monte Carlo, Monaco - WBC. Referee: Mickey Vann. Scorecards: 116-114, 115-115, 116-116. Despite being cut on the forehead in the opening round Washington (189¾) proved to be a tough opponent for the champion. Fighting in a lethargic manner Wamba (189½) did just enough to retain his title, barely raising his game while allowing Washington to dictate on occasion. Even when Washington, his left swelling up, was tiring in the eighth Wamba failed to take advantage, and it was not until the 11th that he realised he needed to work harder. At the final bell, with opinion divided, all talk of Wamba unifying the title appeared to be way off the mark.
