MGM Grand, Las Vegas – In a rematch of their Olympic rivalry, Rau’shee Warren (16-3, 4 KOs) was unable to get revenge as he dropped a twelve round unanimous decision to Nordine Oubaali (15-0, 11 KOs), who captures the vacant WBC bantamweight world title.
The scores were 115-113, 116-112 and 117-111 for Oubaali.
The first half o the contest was razor close, with Oubaali landing the harder punches and Warren doing the better overall boxing with movement and landing punches in calculated moments.
In the second half, when Warren began to slug more than box, it was Oubaali who had the upper-hand with some hard connects during their exchanges.
