1991-03-17 Michael Carbajal w pts 12 Javier Varguez, Bally’s Park Place Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 116-110, 116-110, 116-109. This time Carbajal (107) was unable to get rid of his challenger early and had to survive damage to the left eye into the bargain. There were no knockdowns, Varguez (107) being able to soak up whatever was thrown at him, while getting in with a fair few punches of his own, especially doubled up hooks to the body. Both Carbajal (1) and Varguez (2) were docked points for infringing the rules.
