1985-05-06 Santos Laciar w pts 15 Antoine Montero, Sports Palace, Grenoble, France - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 146-141, 148-142, 147-139. This was yet another tough defence for Laciar (111½), whose skill and experience ultimately proved too much for Montero (111½) despite him coming on strongly over the final third to make it extremely close. There were no knockdowns.

After Laciar relinquished his WBA version of the title in August due to increasing weight problems, Hilario Zapata and Alonzo Gonzales were matched to find a successor.
