2001-06-16 Pedro Alcazar w pts 12 Adonis Rivas, National Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 114-116. Starting well with the left jab, the challenger took the fight to Rivas (114¼) for the opening three rounds before the latter settled down to have some successes. There was no doubt that Alcazar (114¾) was in control most of the way, even though Rivas landed well in the seventh and eighth, and he picked up where he left off over the last four sessions to walk away with the title.
