1991-05-20 Greg Richardson w pts 12 Victor Rabanales, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. Scorecards: 115-111, 117-112, 113-115. It was a fight of two halves, the first part being totally dominated by Richardson (118) who used his six-inch-reach advantage to perfection to keep the aggressive Rabanales (117) at bay, and the latter part by the challenger. Having been cut over the right eye following a butt, Richardson was subjected to a non-stop war of attrition as the Mexican got inside and stayed there. Although losing two points for indiscretions, Rabanales looked a good winner according to the fans but not by the men who counted – the judges.
