1991-08-16 Marcos Villasana w pts 12 Ricardo Cepeda, Puerto Banus Bullring, Marbella, Spain - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. Scorecards: 117-110, 116-114, 118-112. Cepeda (126) made a good start with fast jabs and combinations puzzling Villasana (126), but by the fifth round the champion was beginning to up the pressure when slowing him down with lefts and rights. As the action continued the more Cepeda tired, and with his speed of hand and foot having left him Villasana asserted his authority to run out a good winner.
