1992-12-07 Humberto Gonzalez w pts 12 Melchor Cob Castro, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-113, 117-111. As in their first meeting this one also turned out to be disappointing, both men being southpaws and showing too much respect for each other. With Cob Castro (108), who finished with cuts over both eyes, on the back foot for much of the time and Gonzalez (108) chasing after him it was difficult to score, but the champion’s aggression won the day.
