1988-02-29 [[Daniel Zaragoza]] w rsc 10 (12) [[Carlos Zarate]], Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Vince Delgado. Contested for the title vacated by [[Jeff Fenech]], Zaragoza (121½) completely dominated the veteran, Zarate (121¾), who came apart at the seams as southpaw lefts continually found their way to his head. Occasionally, Zarate showed flashes of past form, but following a big effort in the eighth after being rocked in the ninth he took a pounding throughout the remainder of the session. Allowed to come out for the tenth, Zarate wearily slipped to the canvas when shaken up severely by a left to the jaw immediately prior to the referee calling it off on the 2.54 mark.
