1991-08-16 Marcos Villasana w pts 12 Ricardo Cepeda, Puerto Banus Bullring, Marbella, Spain - WBC. Referee: Lou Filipo. Scorecards: 117-110, 116-114, 118-112. Cepeda (126) made a good start with fast jabs and combinations puzzling Villasana (126), but by the fifth round the champion was beginning to pressure him and was slowing him down with lefts and rights. As the action continued the more Cepeda, who had come into the contest highly fancied, tired and with his speed of hand and foot having left him Villasana asserted his authority to run out a good winner.
