1989-09-30 Jesus Rojas w pts 12 Fidel Bassa, Humberto Perea Coliseum, Barranquilla, Colombia - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-114, 114-117. Although Bassa (111½) set the pace, he was slipping and sliding while Rojas (110¾) boxed on the back foot and proved very elusive. The tenth round saw the champion down and almost out, and both men were bleeding from a head clash before Rojas put in a grandstand finish to just about edge the decision.
