1988-10-29 [[Raul Perez]] w pts 12 [[Miguel Lora]], Hilton Hotel Events Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 117-111, 116-112, 115-113. In an exciting contest despite a lack of knockdowns, the lanky 5’11” Perez (118) overcame the champion’s early lead to pound out a solid points win when taking the last six rounds on the judges’ scorecards. Full of classy boxing, in the opening sessions Lora (117½), his normal flashy self, was countering the Mexican and making him miss before getting off quality left hooks. However, as the fight wore on, Perez winning round after round, it became clear that Lora had to work harder, but unable to change tactics he ultimately fell short.
