1990-01-22 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 of the contest the champion smashed in several heavy rights, but still Canizales kept going. Continuing to be outboxed, Canizales proved there was nothing wrong with his heart when making it to the end without much to show for it.
