1993-09-24 Juan Martin Coggi w co 10 Guillermo Cruz, Villa Lujan Defenders Club Arena, Tucuman, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Content to wait for Cruz (139¼) to come in during the early rounds the southpaw champion knew that he had the power to end the contest early, being prepared to let his rival burn himself out. There was no doubt that Cruz, deducted a point in the second for butting, was going for it, but by the fifth he was being forced to take solid lefts to head and body as Coggi (140) began to let fly. Still under pressure in the tenth, Cruz, stunned by a right hook to the head, was then put down by a short left to the solar plexus and counted out at 1.51 of the session.
