1987-10-24 Bebis Rojas w rsc 4 (12) Gustavo Ballas, Tamiani Fairgrounds, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Jesus Arias Torres. Giving another impressive display of two-handed punching, Rojas (114½) dominated Ballas (115) throughout. Although the latter initially impressed with his bobbing and weaving tactics he was unable to keep the champion at bay for long, the end soon looking imminent. Into the fourth, Rojas opened up big time to catch Ballas heavily, and following a standing count the latter was rescued by the referee on the 2.39 mark after he had been blasted to the ropes and was defenceless.
