15 September Jorge Lujan w pts 15 Alberto Davila, The Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Scorecards: 146-143, 146-143, 146-142. Once again boxing on the back foot, Lujan (117¾) had far too much skill for the aggressive, but outreached Davilla (117¼) and picked up points throughout in a fight that never really looked like ending early. Accepting that he did not need to take risks against the hustling, bustling Davilla, the champion was content to merely box his way to victory and was always in control despite the points margin not entirely refecting that.
