14 September Raul Perez drew 12 Jose Valdez, Sinaloense Bullring, Culiacan, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Scorecards: 116-115, 112-117, 115-114. In a very tight contest the southpaw challenger, Valdez (117¼), proved that he deserved another crack at the title when running Perez (117¼) close. Both men were guilty of holding, often tying each other up, but Perez possessed the better boxing skills and should have kept the challenger at bay more often. The last three rounds possessed the most action, Perez attaking the body and Valdez looking to get off combinations.
