22 January Raul Perez w pts 12 Gaby Canizales, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Vince Delgado. Scorecards: 119-109, 116-102, 117-109. Yet again enjoying a tremendous reach advantage, Perez (117½) kept the left jab going all night, with Canizales (116¼) having great difficulty in avoiding it. In the final third, the champion was looking to end it and several heavy rights found the target, but although Canizales continued to be outboxed there was nothing wrong with his heart as he kept going until the final bell without much to show for it.
