1989-08-06 [[Jorge Paez]] w pts 12 [[Steve Cruz]], County Coliseum, El Paso, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. Scorecards: 117-108, 116-111, 114-111. Despite suffering the indignity of a second-round knockdown after being hit with a right-hand counter, the champion fought his way back, jarring Cruz (125½) up at times and always standing right in front of him. Cruz was clever defensively, but Paez (126) took control from round three onwards, bullying and pounding the Texan, and finished much the stronger when driving forward and ceaselessly throwing punches.
