1994-07-30 Alfred Kotey w pts 12 Rafael Del Valle, York Hall, Bethnal Green, London, England - WBO. Referee: Dave Parris. Scorecards: 116-111, 118-111, 116-112. In taking the title, Kotey (115¾), who scored a solid knockdown in round two, made all the running against the better boxing of Del Valle (118). Kotey just about deserved the unanimous verdict, but not by the margins shown on the cards. It was all about skill versus power and aggression, the judges siding with the latter after being impressed by his forward march.
