1994-01-07 Alex Sanchez w rsc 1 Arturo Garcia Mayan, The Casino, Palma De Mallorca, Spain - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Just 16 days after winning the WBO title, Sanchez (105) was back in the ring defending it, if you could call it a defence. His opponent, an inept Texan of Mexican heritage, turned his back on Sanchez during the first round and the fight was called off at 1.30 of the session. In the aftermath it transpired that Garcia Mayan (105) claimed to have had just three pro fights, none of which could be substantiated.
