1995-02-20 Sammy Fuentes w rsc 2 Fidel Avendano, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Lou Filippo. Contesting the title vacated by Zack Padilla, Fuentes (139½) started fast against Avendano (138) and by the end of the first round had the Mexican stumbling around the ring after larruping him with left hooks. There was no letting up in the second as Fuentes, a late substitute for Hector Lopez, fired in punch after punch at the almost defenceless Avendano before the referee called a halt with just 41 seconds of the session gone.
