23 October Raul Perez w pts 12 Diego Avila, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: John Thomas. Scorecards: 119-111, 118-110, 115-113. In a clash of styles between fellow Mexicans, the tall Perez (117¾) held on to his title after comfortably outscoring Avila (118), whose main form of attack consisted of rushing in where he got tangled up by the long arms of the champion. Finishing with cuts over the right eye and on the bridge of the nose, Avila had tried hard enough but the task was just too much for him.
