1989-06-05 Gilberto Roman w pts 12 Juan Carazo, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 116-112. Giving yet another excellent display of classy left-hand boxing and counter-punching at its best, Roman (115) took the points decision when subduing the dangerous Carazo (115), who finished with a badly cut cheek but never gave up trying. Despite offering occasional glimpses of aggression, especially in round four when both men hit the floor, the champion was content to box his way home decisively.
