2002-08-03 Acelino Freitas w pts 12 Daniel Attah, The Dodge Theatre, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - WBO/WBA. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Scorecards: 117-110, 117-110, 117-110. While there was no doubting the champion’s power, it was ominous that since moving up in class Attah (130) became the third opponent in succession to deny him an inside-the-distance victory. Although he hadn’t boxed for eight months, the wily Attah, making a difficult target, gave Freitas (130) all the problems he could handle and never remained in one place long enough to be blown away. Docked a point for low blows in the tenth, Freitas continued to land solidly but Attah was taking whatever was coming his way without too much difficulty and the contest virtually petered out before the final bell. With Freitas still recognised by the WBA as their ‘super’ champion, Yodsanan Sornantachai stopped Lamont Pearson in the ninth round at the Royal Square, Bangkok, Thailand on 5 December to retain the WBA ‘second tier’ title.
