1990-10-18 [[Luis Mendoza]] w pts 12 [[Fabrice Benichou]], Sports Palace, Paris, France - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Scorecards: 116-113, 117-113, 114-115. Although the tough challenger gave it everything he had the superior technique of Mendoza (122), who took no chances, ultimately won the day in his first defence. While Benichou (121¾) missed frequently and was hit by straight lefts for his pains it was never uncompetitive and Mendoza had to be alert to avoid the bull-like rushes. However, avoid them he did and Benichou was often made to pay. One judge even had Benichou ahead, which was strange, but he had done all the forcing and had a couple of good rounds before tiring towards the end.
