1995-07-29 Alex Sanchez w pts 12 Tomas Rivera, Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas, USA - WBO. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: 115-112, 119-108, 116-111. An exciting battle between well-matched fighters, saw Sanchez (104) keep the upper hand over a durable and cagey Rivera (104) who never looked like going down inside the distance. However, in the last third, the challenger probably realised he was not going to win, having given it his best shot, and seemed happy enough to go the distance.
