1995-11-26 Antonio Cermeno w pts 12 Jesus Salud, Limon Arena, Maracay, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Uriel Aguilera. Scorecards: 120-110, 119-110, 118-112. Although Salud (121¼) applied pressure from the start the champion, using height-and-reach advantages, soon got behind the jab to dominate from the middle rounds onwards as his rival tired. From that point, Salud, cut over the right eye in the 11th, could never match Cermeno (120½) for work-rate, and although he was always dangerous the fight drifted away from him.
