1991-10-07 Raul Perez w pts 12 Luis Mendoza, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Lou Moret. Scorecards: 115-114, 116-114, 111-117. Extremely competitive, Perez (121¾) started well with double jabs and a variety of blows to head and body, but showing his counter-punching skills by the seventh round the champion was punishing his rival to the body. Coming down the stretch it was toe to toe as both looked for supremacy, but it was the fury of Perez which ultimately prevailed over the skilled Mendoza (121½).
