2003-03-22 [[Scott Harrison]] w pts 12 [[Wayne McCullough]], Braehead Arena, Renfrew, Scotland - WBO. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 119-108, 120-108, 119-109. On top throughout, Harrison (125¾) once again proved what a strong man at the weight he was as he forced the former Olympic silver medallist to give ground continuously, systematically cutting the ring down and punching well with both hands. By the eighth round many felt that it had become too one-sided and should have been called off, but McCullough (125) bravely stayed the distance despite never looking likely to beat the champion while once again showing his ability to take a good punch.
