1991-04-11 [[Marcos Villasana]] w rsc 6 [[Rafael Zuniga]], Arena Coliseum, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Vince Delgado. On top throughout, with left jabs and solid rights to head and body keeping the southpaw challenger on the back foot, Villasana (125¾) never looked like losing despite having a point deducted for low blows in the third round and suffering a cut left cheek in the fourth. Zuniga (125) was out of his depth against a man who had five attempts to gain the title before winning it, and after he was driven to the ropes in the sixth and was shipping heavy punishment the referee called it off on the 2.09 mark.
