1994-12-17 Frankie Liles w pts 12 Michael Nunn, Runinahui Coliseum, Quito, Ecuador - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Scorecards: 114-113, 115-112, 117-111. The champion started well when staggering Nunn (168) with a southpaw straight left in the first round and he continued to be busy during the opening six sessions, landing solidly with short right and left hook counters. Nunn, who worked the body from the third onwards, was docked a point in the fifth for going low and he continued to sail close to the wind before Liles (167) got his jab going again in the eighth. In the last three rounds both men did some good work, but it was Liles who impressed the judges the most to take the decision.
