1994-01-07 Daniel Jimenez w pts 12 Felix Garcia Losada, The Casino, Palma De Mallorca, Spain - WBO. Referee: Ismael Fernandez. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-115, 118-115. This fight, a return, was made due to Garcia (122) not doing himself justice first time round and feeling he had the beating of Jimenez (122). Garcia certainly started well enough, winning three of the opening five rounds on the cards and being roared on by the home fans, but from thereon he allowed the initiative to rest with the champion. At least three rounds were close enough to leave neither man with an advantage, but just when Garcia was expected to pick up the pace he decided on safety first.
