1997-12-02 [[Charles Brewer]] w pts 12 [[Joey DeGrandis]], Blue Horizon, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 119-109, 117-111, 120-108. Making the first defence of his title, despite being unable to stow away his rock-hard opponent Brewer (166½) dominated the proceedings with his ten-inch reach advantage keeping DeGrandis (168) at bay for much of the time. When DeGrandis did occasionally manage to close the champion down he was able to land heavy overarm rights, but in the main he was the one taking the shots and showed plenty of grit to make it to the final bell.
