1991-05-04 [[Orlando Canizales]] w rsc 8 [[Billy Hardy]], Civic Centre, Laredo, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. Continuing to show good form, Canizales (118) outboxed and outpunched Hardy (118), who was trying to improve on their previous meeting, staggering the Englishman in the second before dropping him in the third. With Canizales generally dictating matters from there on it seemed just a matter of time. Despite a brave rally by the challenging Hardy in rounds six and seven, in the next session a left hook sent him crashing to be rescued by the referee on the 1.08 mark.
