1994-08-12 Frankie Liles w pts 12 Steve Little, Villa Lujan Defenders Football Ground, Tucuman, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 118-112, 116-114, 118-113. In one of the poorest fights ever seen in Argentina, Little (166¾) lost his title first time round when being well outpointed by Liles (164¾). Scoring with good jabs and right crosses, the tall southpaw was always going too well for the champion, who found it difficult to get inside and was consistently wrong-footed. Whatever Little tried he was thwarted and the only real surprise was that one judge had him just two points down.
