1993-06-19 Orlando Canizales tdraw 3 Derrick Whiteboy, The Summit, Houston, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Gonzalez. With Whiteboy (115¾) staying on the outside for the opening couple of rounds and Canizales (118) chasing him nothing really happened of note, but come the third it was apparent that the challenger was beginning to move up a gear and looking to make a fight of it. Unfortunately, just when things were beginning to look interesting the pair clashed heads heavily, leaving Canizales, who sustained a badly cut left eye, unable to continue at 1.23 of the session. Announced as being a no-contest, the decision was later recognised as a technical draw.
