1993-11-20 Orlando Canizales w pts 12 Juvenal Berrio, Carousel Casino, Temba, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Barry Yeats. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 116-110. Controlling the fight throughout, Canizales (118) found Berrio (118) to be a game and willing challenger, who despite lacking the skill and ringcraft to take his title was always trying to get to close quarters where he might do some damage. Although lacking the power of his earlier defences, the Texan followed up the jab with precise and accurate combinations that kept the willing Berrio at bay and was rarely troubled.
