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 he took a pounding throughout the ninth after being rocked by more heavy shots to the head. Allowed to come out for the tenth, the weary Zarate was shaken up severely by a right to the cheek immediately prior to the referee calling it off on the 2.54 mark.
