1995-12-09 Frankie Liles w pts 12 Mauricio Amaral, Hans Martin Schleyer Hall, Stuttgart, Germany - WBA. Referee: Hubert Earle. Scorecards: 119-108, 118-110, 118-111. Winning virtually every round bar the sixth, despite Amaral (165¾) hammering in rights to the body the champion continued to score well with solid southpaw jabs throughout, barely raising his game. Strong and durable, even if somewhat easy to work out, with Amaral always going to be a hard man to stop the nearest Liles (168) came to achieving that was when he dropped him in the last ten seconds of the fight. Needless to say, the Brazilian was on his feet at the final bell.
