1988-10-02 Fidel Bassa w pts 12 Ray Medel, Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas, USA - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Scorecards: 117-111, 116-115, 116-112. There were no knockdowns with the heavier hitting Medel (112) mainly kept at bay by the better boxing of Bassa (111), who finished with several facial cuts. Although the American was game enough he had no answer to the sharp jabs, hooks and uppercuts thrown by the champion, especially in the early stages.

Following the formation of the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) in November after 27 delegates walked out of the WBA convention in disgust, the new organisation nominated Elvis Alvarez to meet Miguel Mercedes to decide their version of the vacant title.
