2001-09-29 Nelson Dieppa w pts 12 Fahlan Sakkreerin, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 118-110. Beating his southpaw challenger to the punch throughout, Dieppa (108) fully deserved his win against a man who ran out of ideas long before the final bell. Not able to outsmart Dieppa, who carried the extra power, it was an uphill struggle for Sakkreerin (107) and the difference in class was highlighted by the judges’ scorecards.
