1987-03-19 Gilberto Roman w pts 12 Frank Cedeno, The Bullring, Calafia, Mexicali, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 118-107, 118-108, 117-108. Despite being put down in the first round and cut over the left eye in the fourth, Roman (115) gained control and never relinquished it, his superior boxing being the key to victory over the tough Cedeno (115), a former WBC flyweight champion. Although the challenger never looked like going down, at the final bell he was under a lot of pressure after Roman had made a run for home.
