1990-09-14 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, who possessed the better boxing skills, should have kept the challenger at bay more often. The last three rounds contained the most action, Perez attacking the body while Valdez looked to get off combinations.
