1993-03-06 [[Wilfredo Vazquez]] w pts 12 [[Luis Mendoza]], Marcel Cerdan Sports Palace, Levallois-Perret, France - WBA. Referee: Franco Priami. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-113, 116-114. Fighting at close quarters almost from start to finish, with Vazquez (121¾) concentrating on hooks to the head and body and the challenger replying with flurries, there were very few straight blows of any quality that landed throughout as both men seemed intent on making it that kind of contest. When they did break free, Mendoza (121½), cut over the right eye in the eighth, proved the better boxer but was unable to keep away from Vazquez whose aggression just about got him home.
