1992-02-15 Michael Carbajal w pts 12 Marcos Pacheco, Civic Plaza, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Scorecards: 117-113, 117-110, 116-111. Remaining cool and calm, Carbajal (107½) stayed in the driving seat for much of the time, scoring points and countering Pacheco (108) heavily off the back foot. The champion’s plan was to avoid the kind of facial damage he had recently had to suffer, but although a clear winner it backfired when an accidental butt opened a cut over his left eye that took five stitches to repair.
