1992-07-11 Robert Quiroga w pts 12 Jose Ruiz, Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 114-113, 114-113, 114-114. Knocked down in the third round, Quiroga (114) put that behind him as he just about retained his title over the fast-moving Ruiz (115), who would have been crowned champion if he had upped his work-rate. Admittedly below par, many of his combinations being blocked or off target, at least Quiroga made the running while Ruiz spent too much time posturing.
