2004-11-27 [[Oscar Larios]] w pts 12 [[Nedal Hussein]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 118-110, 119-109, 120-108. After sampling the power of the challenger early on, Larios (121) realised that the best way to retain his title would be in sticking to his boxing and that is what he did, losing just one round – the 12th. Outworking Hussein (122) with lefts and rights, Larios kept the momentum going against the dangerous Aussie to go further and further ahead as the fight progressed. Although Hussein landed a cracking right to Larios’ head in the final session it was all too late, the latter being able to make it to the bell where his victory was greeted loudly by his supporters.
