1987-05-16 Santos Laciar w rsc 11 (12) Gilberto Roman, Rene Thys Stadium, Reims, France - WBC. Referee: Angelo Poletti. As in their previous contest the return was just as close, with Roman (114¼) having the edge due to his better technique standing him in good stead against the challenger’s determined attacks. Because their heads came together so often it was hardly surprising that Roman was cut over the left eye as early as the second round. Then, after settling down, the cut was reopened by a Laciar (115) left hook in the 11th session, which led to the referee stopping the fight on the advice of the ringside physician.
