1994-02-19 Humberto Gonzalez w pts 12 Michael Carbajal, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC/IBF. Referee: Lou Filippo. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-113, 114-116. Doing the unthinkable, Gonzalez (107) regained his titles when outboxing the boxer, Carbajal (108), darting in and out to pick up points and making himself a difficult target. Both men were blooded, but while Gonzalez stuck to his game plan, Carbajal posed too much and in a boring affair he failed to put in enough work to retain his titles.
