2002-01-19 DeMarcus Corley w pts 12 Ener Julio, Jai-Alai Fronton, Miami, Florida, USA - WBO. Referee: Jorge Alonso. Scorecards: 119-105, 118-107, 117-107. Corley (140) started well when knocking his challenger down in the second and third rounds, but on both occasions he failed to finish the job when standing off to admire his work. Although Julio (140) had a five-inch advantage in height he was not able to use it to his advantage as he did not have the hand speed to match and the southpaw champion continually beat him to the punch. In the sixth the Colombian came on stronger, but after Corley sank to his knees, having been punched down, Julio stupidly hit him before he had arisen and was docked two points. From thereon, with Corley tiring, Julio came more into it but due to his lack of mobility he was unable to do too much damage and the fight ran its course.
