2004-04-17 [[Wayne Braithwaite]] w pts 12 [[Louis Azille]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBC. Referee: Eddie Claudio. Scorecards: 119-108, 120-107, 118-107. Having earlier knocked out Azille (193¾) in an eliminator, the champion was expected to repeat the feat and he came close to doing that when dropping his man with a terrific left hook to the head in the third round. Unfortunately for Braithwaite both of his hands were damaged early on and that allowed Azille to stay in the fight. Despite the much shorter Azille landing the occasional heavy shot, Braithwaite took virtually every round as he biffed and banged away at his tough rival without ever being able to finish him off.
