1994-10-15 [[Chris Eubank]] w pts 12 [[Dan Schommer]], Superbowl, Sun City, South Africa - WBO. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-114, 117-113. This was yet another fight for Eubank in which the pundits disagreed with the judges’ scorecards. Starting brightly, the southpaw Schommer was soon on the back foot, banging out jabs and crosses, and despite not working flat out for several rounds he was able to evade the champion’s best punches with good movement. In the seventh Eubank finally had some success when a right to the jaw hurt the American, but he was unable to build on it and it was only in the ninth that he began to take over. Even then Schommer, who had only boxed twice in three years, had his moments as Eubank continued to miss with wild punches, but the fact that he very rarely came forward would have counted against him.
