2000-12-15 [[Eric Morel]] w pts 12 [[Gilberto Keb Baas]], Alliant Energy Centre, Madison, Wisconsin, USA - WBA. Referee: Dick Bartman. Scorecards: 116-111, 117-109, 117-109. After knocking Keb Baas (112) down in the second following a sharp burst of punches it was felt that Morel (112) would use his wonderful left jab to further unlock the challenger’s defences. He did not, the only explanation being that he had an injury. Unable to force the fight, the diminutive Mexican boxed well on the retreat and posed problems, especially when Morel went to sleep, but he was always trailing.
