1995-01-28 Alex Sanchez w pts 12 Rafael Orozco, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-110, 115-110. When Sanchez (105) dumped Orozco (104) on the canvas in the opening round it looked like another early night for the young champion. However, the Mexican not only got up but went the full course, while giving an impressive display of controlled boxing on the back foot before being put down in the last round, more from a slip than a punch.
