1988-06-23 Antonio Esparragoza drew 12 Marcos Villasana, Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 116-112, 111-116, 114-114. Piling up points in the early rounds from both hands the champion got away to a good start, but by the tenth he was reeling under the weight of punches coming his way. The 11th and 12th were also a big rounds for Villasana (126) as he walked through Esparragoza (126) with punches to head and body, and it was only the point deducted from him in the fifth for a low blow that stopped him from winning.
