1999-05-15 Johnny Nelson w pts 12 Bruce Scott, Ponds Forge Leisure Centre, Sheffield, England - WBO. Referee: John Coyle. Far too fast for his challenger, Nelson (190) used his reach advantage to good effect to win but two or three rounds on his way to an easy defence. Scott (187) came to fight, but was outmanoeuvred throughout and knocked down in the third when caught by a short right counter. Although he was up quickly, Scott, his left eye swollen, never remotely came close to unseating Nelson, who controlled him whether it was on the inside or at distance.
