1990-08-26 Humberto Gonzalez w co 9 Jorge Rivera, The Bullring, Cancun, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Jose Medina. Dropped in the opening round was not a great start for Rivera (108), but he managed to get back into the fight despite being battered in most of the rounds. With the crowd wondering why Gonzalez (108) had not finished off what he had started, the champion finally caught up with Rivera in the ninth, a body attack softening his fellow Mexican up for the right to the jaw, followed by a right-left to the body, which left him on the floor and counted out on the 1.37 mark. Gonzalez finished the fight with a broken left hand, which explained why he failed to get the job done earlier.
