1988-04-08 [[Gilberto Roman]] w pts 12 [[Bebis Rojas]], Convention Centre, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: John Thomas. Scorecards: 118-110, 115-111, 115-112. It looked as though history might repeat itself when Roman (115) was knocked down in the second round and cut over the right eye in the third. Ultimately, however, he proved too quick and clever for the taller Rojas (115), even though the latter was the heavier puncher. As the fight wore on Roman took over, scoring well from head to body and cutting the champion’s right eye in the ninth session to run out a good winner.
