1989-06-22 Daniel Zaragoza w pts 12 Paul Banke, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Scorecards: 116-110, 117-110, 113-115. Despite piling up the points with stabbing rights and combinations to head and body throughout, Zaragoza (122) was unable to relax against the dangerous challenger and was cut over the right eye in the fourth, cut on the scalp in seventh, and under the left eye before being dropped by a right-left in the ninth for an ‘eight’ count. While Banke (121½) gave it his all and was never subdued, Zaragoza weathered the storm to come back strongly, his right jab and combinations catching his rival consistently through to the final bell.
