1992-02-22 Jose Quirino w pts 12 Jose Ruiz, Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-111, 115-112. Taking control from the start and despite being cut over the left eye in the sixth, Quirino (115) never allowed Ruiz (115) any opportunities, stalking the champion and pressing him throughout to walk off with the decision and the title. From the sixth onwards it was as comprehensive a victory as one would wish to see and at no time did Ruiz look likely to come out on top.
