1991-06-28 : Jeff Fenech 128¾ lbs drew with Azumah Nelson 129¾ lbs by SD in round 12 of 12

Nelson started fast, but seemed to be worn down and rendered ineffective by Fenech's swarming attacks and dogged perseverance. Looked close to being stopped in final round. Draw decision very controversial. Nelson later claimed that he had fought the bout days after another bout--with malaria. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TqQUska1s4
