1989-09-12 Gilberto Roman w pts 12 Santos Laciar, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-111, 118-110. Despite shaking the champion up on occasion, Laciar (114½) was generally on the receiving end of the left hand as Roman (114¾) stayed on the outside to avert any danger, jabbing and moving adroitly to avoid getting caught up in a slugging match. The plan worked well, with Laciar, unable to get his punches off apart from the odd success, chasing shadows for most of the time and losing widely.
