1987-08-08 Bebis Rojas w pts 12 Santos Laciar, Tamiani Fairgrounds, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Abraham Bernal. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-111, 117-111. Outboxed and outclassed, Laciar (115) never looked like retaining his title as Rojas (114¾) got to the front early, with the jab working like a piston. Even when put under pressure Rojas fought back with two-handed attacks that drove the champion to the ropes. Several times Laciar looked as though he would be dropped when finding Rojas too fast for him, but although bemused at times he stuck to his guns to go down fighting.
