2002-11-08 Johnny Bredahl w pts 12 Leo Gamez, Falkoner Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 115-114, 117-112, 117-113. Disappointed with his performance despite his points-scoring left hand, Bredahl (117) made hard work of what should have been an easier defence, the 39-year-old Gamez (116¼) having gone back considerably since his halcyon days. Game, but never threatening, Gamez should have been despatched summarily, but the champion was strangely off colour and it was probably a good thing that he was not facing a more dangerous opponent.

On 4 October 2003 at the Ryogoku Sumo Arena, Tokyo, Japan, Hideki Todaka acquired the WBA ‘interim’ title when outpointing Gamez over 12 rounds.
