1998-12-18 [[Will Grigsby]] w pts 12 [[Ratanapol Sor Vorapin]], War Memorial Coliseum, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - IBF. Referee: Bill Connors. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-112, 118-111. Fighting for the title forfeited by [[Mauricio Pastrana]], Grigsby (107¼) won by boxing to instructions when staying on the outside and picking his punches, mainly jabs and countering blows. While it was not exciting stuff, the American camp knew that the southpaw, Sor Vorapin (107¾), would look to close in to get his punches off, and in the main he was denied.
