1990-05-25 [[Luis Mendoza]] drew 12 [[Ruben Dario Palacios]], Indian Bullring, Cartagena, Colombia - WBA. Referee: Bernie Soto. Scorecards: 116-113, 113-115, 114-114. Contested for the vacant title after [[Jesus Salud]] had forfeited for failing to go through with a defence against Mendoza (122), Palacios (122) made a fast start before the former came on strong in the latter rounds to even it up. The 12th round was the best of the lot and Mendoza had Palacios on the verge of a knockout defeat, but with the finishing punch failing to arrive the pair would have to do it all over again.
