1989-07-10 [[Juan Jose Estrada]] w pts 12 [[Luis Mendoza]], The Auditorium, Tijuana, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Eddie Eckert. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-111, 117-112. Although Mendoza (121) proved to be the better boxer of the pair, having fair success against the champion with right uppercuts, he was often troubled by heavy punches and could never find his proper rhythm. Estrada (122) had the heavy artillery and was always dangerous, especially with body shots, and rocked Mendoza in the latter rounds before running out of steam in the 12th when cut under the left eye and being outpunched through to the final bell. However, it was too little and too late for Mendoza, who went down handily on all three scorecards.
