1991-06-03 Humberto Gonzalez w pts 12 Melchor Cob Castro, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 116-113. Coming from behind, having been perplexed earlier in the fight, Gonzalez (108) regained the title when he worked the body well to upset Castro (108) in the latter rounds. Gonzalez, who was in great condition, was quoted as saying: “My road to victory came in the seventh and eighth rounds, when I went to the body”. That was a fair assessment and there was no doubting that Castro needed a kayo in the final two rounds if he was to win.
