1989-05-21 Jorge Paez drew 12 Louie Espinoza, Hilton Hotel, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Scorecards: 115-113, 113-116, 114-114. With the pace never slackening and bitterly fought it seemed almost impossible to find a winner at the finish, and that was how it turned out as Paez (126) was deemed to have retained his title by dint of a draw after the scorecards were totalled up. It seemed a fair result as Espinoza (126) put his punches together better than Paez, but was rocked by left uppercuts, hooks and over-the-top rights as the pair went at it hammer and tongs.
