2003-07-12 [[Manuel Medina]] w pts 12 [[Scott Harrison]], Braehead Arena, Renfrew, Scotland - WBO. Referee: Mickey Vann. Scorecards: 118-113, 116-112, 113-115. In what was quite an upset, Harrison (125¾) was outworked by the veteran challenger, who prodded and poked away with both hands all night without ever looking to do any real damage to his rival. Meanwhile, the champion, unable to pin his rival down for long and cut on the left eye in the eighth, landed the better quality blows but there were fewer of them and at times he appeared one paced. While there were no doubts that it was close, Medina (125¾) proved that he was still a difficult man to beat on this performance.
