2003-10-18 In-Jin Chi drew 12 Michael Brodie, MEN Arena, Manchester, England - WBC. Referee: Daniel Van De Wiele. Scorecards: 114-112, 113-113, 113-113. This one was billed for the vacant title following Erik Morales’ decision to move up a weight. After appearing to be a good winner, Chi (125¾) was later told that as one of the cards had been incorrectly added up the result was a majority draw due to a mistake over points deductions on the head-clash ruling. The fight itself was superb, with both men giving everything and more, Brodie (126) virtually finishing with both eyes shut while Chi was cut above and below the left eye. Brodie was down in the second round and at times looked like being overwhelmed before coming back magnificently. For his part, Chi also proved to be a fighting man who would not take no for an answer.
