1993-08-13 Juan Martin Coggi w pts 12 Jose Rafael Barboza, Lanus Sports Centre, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 119-114, 118-112, 117-111. Coming out fast from the opening bell, virtually allowing Barboza (139¼) no time to settle, the southpaw champion dropped his man with a solid left in the opening session and looked to finish early. However, Barboza had other ideas and quitting was not one of them. Although Coggi (139¾) never looked like losing he had to be on his toes throughout as his rival rallied strongly and held his ground until the final bell.
