1996-03-23 Antonio Cermeno w pts 12 Yober Ortega, The Arena, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 116-115, 115-114, 116-112. Prior to the eighth round the southpaw Ortega (120¾) led the fight on the scorecards by dint of a ceaseless attack that often had the champion struggling to find any kind of rhythm. But from then on Cermeno (121), abandoning the jab, took control with concentrated body attacks and although Ortega threw plenty of leather in return the better work came from the former, who just about got home.
