1996-10-12 [[Michael Carbajal]] w rsc 5 [[Tomas Rivera]], Arrowhead Pond Arena, Anaheim, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Pat Russell. Looking in great shape Carbajal (107) dominated his challenger from the opening bell, whether it was on the inside or the outside. Whatever Rivera (108) tried it was ineffective and he was put down twice in the fourth, although somehow managing to last the round out. Answering the bell for the fifth he was soon under pressure, nobody being surprised when a heavy right dumped him for the count, which was timed at 1.26.
