2002-03-01 Eric Lucas w pts 12 Vinny Pazienza, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Ledyard, Connecticut, USA - WBC. Referee: Eddie Cotton. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-112, 119-110. Although well on top of the 39-year-old Pazienza (168), who hardly deserved a crack at the title, Lucas (167¾) was unable to drop the former IBF lightweight and WBA junior middleweight champion and ultimately had to settle for the wide points decision. While Lucas disappointed, Pazienza had promised his fans that he would brawl his way to victory, but it was only in the final session that he gave them a glimpse of what he used to be. Being cut over the right eye in the second merely added to Pazienza’s woes, which would have been a lot worse had Lucas opened up.
