2004-09-04 Lamon Brewster w pts 12 Kali Meehan, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Jay Nady. Scorecards: 115-113, 114-113, 113-114. Having been the champion’s sparring partner a short while earlier, Meehan (236) was not expected to win the title and was rated a 10-1 outsider coming into the fight. Struggling with a damaged nose from the second round, coming into the eighth Brewster (227) was only marginally ahead, both men having landed with some heavy shots, but in that session he was forced to take a beating and came close to being stopped as Meehan attacked non-stop. It was clear in the ninth that Meehan had almost punched himself out, but he was still dangerous. However, it was Brewster who rallied to win three of the last four sessions, and it was that late surge that allowed him to squeeze in front of the tough Australian.
