1995-05-13 [[Antonio Cermeno]] w pts 12 [[Wilfredo Vazquez]], Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, Bayamon, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Luis Rivera. Scorecards: 115-114, 116-114, 116-116. The veteran Vazquez (122) finally lost his title in his tenth defence, but it was mighty close. Although he started cautiously, by the fourth round the lanky Cermeno (122) realised that the best way to handle Vazquez was on the inside where he could negate the heavy punches better. And that is how it went, with Cermeno absorbing Vazquez’s blows while being the busier of the two and the latter looking for a one-punch finish before eventually running out of gas.
