2005-01-28 Scott Harrison drew 12 Victor Polo, Braehead Arena, Glasgow, Scotland - WBO. Referee: Samuel Viruet. Scorecards: 115-113, 113-116, 114-114. Denied from winning a major title for the fourth time by a verdict that hardly favoured him, at the finish the Colombian southpaw challenger had given it everything and more. Although he made a reasonable start, Harrison (125¾), cut and swollen on his left eye from a raking left hand in the sixth, was up against it from then on as Polo (125¾) gained in confidence, and as the rounds went by the challenger started to take over, especially after his body punches began to have an effect on the champion.
