2003-11-29 Scott Harrison w rsc 11 Manuel Medina, Braehead Arena, Renfrew, Scotland - WBO. Referee: Manuel Maritxalar. Making an early start, Harrison (125¾) made his mind up not to allow the champion to find his gears this time round, having his rival on the floor in the first round from an accumulation of punches. However, Medina (125½), a rough, tough fighter of the old school, cut Harrison over the left eye in the fourth before he too was also cut, over the right eye, as the fight turned this way and that until becoming messy right through to the tenth session when Harrison took control again. Put down for six, then again prior to the bell, with Medina unravelling the end came after 31 seconds of the 11th had elapsed when he was smashed to the canvas by a right to the temple and rescued by the referee.
