1995-06-02 Miguel Angel Gonzalez w pts 12 Marty Jakubowski, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Ledyard, Connecticut, USA - WBC. Referee: Mickey Vann. Scorecards: 119-108, 118-108, 119-107. Although the challenger proved to be a good boxer, he was no match for the hard-hitting Gonzalez (135), who cruised to an easy points win. To be fair to Jakubowski (134¼), despite being in over his head he lasted the distance well, especially after being dropped in the eighth following a double left jab and a right to the head. Stunned again in the 11th, Jakubowski gamely stuck to his task but he had no answer to the right uppercuts and left hooks that constantly reminded him of the huge gulf in class and power between the pair.
