1986-08-30 Gilberto Roman drew 12 Santos Laciar, Green Pavilion, Cordoba, Argentina - WBC. Referee: Ismael Quinones-Falu. Scorecards: 117-116, 111-117, 116-116. A seesaw affair saw Roman (114½) dominating at distance and Laciar (114¼) looking to get inside at every opportunity. Although Roman thought he was hard done by, the challenger, who had his left eye almost closed tight at the finish, was given a six-round victory by the American judge which would have been a travesty if repeated by the other two officials.
