1993-07-08 Jorge Eliecer Julio w pts 12 Ricardo Vargas, The Bullring, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Bernie Soto. Scorecards: 117-110, 117-111, 114-114. Taking the fight to the champion from the opening bell, Vargas (116½), throwing fast punches and keeping up a good pace, made Julio (118) work hard, but the harder punches came from the latter who eventually turned up the volume to impress the judges. Although Julio was forced to chase his rival throughout, finding it difficult to pin him down, he finally got his reward in the 12th round when dropping Vargas with a right to the jaw, being all over him when the fight came to an end.
