28 April Romeo Anaya w pts 15 Rogelio Lara, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: John Thomas. Scorecards: 8-6, 8-6, 6-7. Having fallen behind to the superior boxing skills of the challenger, Anaya (118) rallied strongly over the last six rounds to just about warrant the split decision, but it was too close for comfort. It really was a battle of two halves, with Anaya unable to get to the speedy Lara (117½) before the latter tired and then relentlessly harrying his rival to come through.
