22 February Lupe Pintor w pts 15 Jose Uziga, Sam Houston Coliseum, Houston, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Chris Jordan. Scorecards: 148-139, 148-136, 150-128. Making his sixth defence, Pintor (118) pounded out a wide points decision over Uziga (117½), who was on his bike for the whole 15 rounds and never once raised a fist in anger. The big surprise was that he was never off his feet despite being on the verge of being stopped in round five, ten, 11 and 13, which disappointed Pintor’s large army of fans.
