1994-12-03 Eloy Rojas w pts 12 Luis Mendoza, Campin Coliseum, Bogota, Colombia - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Scorecards: 117-111, 116-114, 115-113. There was no doubt that both men came to fight and while the champion proved to be the better puncher of the two Mendoza (125¾) certainly gave him plenty of problems, especially when countering heavily in the sixth and seventh rounds. The aggressive Rojas (126) scored well at times, but it was only when he dropped Mendoza twice in the final session with heavy rights to the head that he made sure of victory.
