1986-06-04 [[Bernardo Pinango]] w pts 15 [[Gaby Canizales]], Byrne Meadowlands Arena, East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 147-138, 148-144, 146-142. It was hard to believe that this was the same man who defeated [[Richie Sandoval]] as Canizales (118) finished with both eyes badly damaged and went down almost without a struggle against Pinango (118), who came home a comfortable winner. Jabbing and hooking well, the challenger, a silver medallist in the 1980 Olympics, took all that Canizales had to offer and stormed to victory, his long-armed punching from both hands being especially effective.
