2002-11-23 Johnny Nelson drew 12 Guillermo Jones, Storm Arena, Derby, England - WBO. Referee: Paul Thomas. Scorecards: 116-113, 113-115, 114-114. Lucky to escape with his title intact, Boxing News reporting that he won only two rounds at best, Nelson (189) somehow got a draw due to some surprising scoring by two judges to say the least. Whatever fighting there was came from Jones (189), but as an untidy affair with much cuffing and slapping it fell far below championship standard.
