1989-01-21 Mauricio Aceves drew 12 Amancio Castro, The Stadium, Monteria, Colombia - WBO. Referee: Mariano Soto. Scorecards: 115-115, 118-118, 114-114. Contesting the inaugural WBO title at the weight, Castro (134) appeared to dominate the first eight rounds before Aceves (134) got into his stride in the ninth with body punches putting the Colombian on the back foot. Subsequently, Aceves took over, flooring Castro with a right-left combination in the 12th. Although Castro was up quickly he was soon under severe pressure before somehow making it to the bell.
