1995-02-10 Johnny Tapia w pts 12 Jose Rafael Sosa, University of New Mexico Arena, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Scorecards: 120-107, 118-109, 117-110. Crab-like but surprisingly fast, Sosa (114½) proved to be a cagey customer as he courageously lasted the course in the face of the champion’s all-out aggression. With the Argentinian making himself a difficult target, Tapia (114¾), who was unable to take his man out, ultimately had to be satisfied with a run-away points win.
