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. As the rounds went by the challenger started to take over, especially after his body punches began to have an effect on the champion, but it was not to be.
