1985-08-09 Miguel Lora w pts 12 Daniel Zaragoza, Tamiani Fairgrounds Auditorium, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 118-107, 116-109, 115-110. Having recently won the title, the southpaw Zaragoza (118) was expected to build on that victory but came unstuck at the first time of asking when Lora (118) knocked him down three times, once in the fourth and twice in the fifth, before romping away with the points decision. On top throughout, the Colombian showed fast footwork, coupled to a sharp left jab that cut the champion’s left eye in the ninth and was always one move ahead of his rival.
