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 while the challenger replied with flurries, there were very few straight blows of any quality that landed throughout. When they did break free, although Mendoza (121½), cut over the right eye in the eighth, proved the better boxer he was unable to keep away from Vazquez whose aggression just about got him home.
