2005-02-10 Oscar Larios w pts 12 Wayne McCullough, Palace Indian Gaming Centre, Lemoore, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Jon Schorle. Scorecards: 118-110, 118-110, 116-112. Giving it everything he had the former champion tried his hardest to remove the crown from the head of Larios (121¾), but was ultimately found wanting as age caught up with him. Try as he might, McCullough (121) could make no impression on Larios, cut over the left eye in the sixth, and was met with fast jabs and left hooks as he attempted sustained body attacks. Still the brave Irishman kept coming, taking everything Larios could toss at him, but with his punches having little effect although he made it to the final bell the latter was a clear winner.
