1997-01-18 [[Oscar De La Hoya]] w pts 12 [[Miguel Angel Gonzalez]], Thomas & Mack Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mills Lane. Scorecards: 117-110, 117-111, 117-109. Although he could hardly miss with the left jab and set Gonzalez (140) up on countless occasions, the champion could not find the punches to put the Mexican hardman away with. Twice Gonzalez (140) had points deducted for transgressing the rules, but it would not have made any difference as De La Hoya (140) won almost every round effortlessly. Some of De La Hoya’s work was blinding and the ‘CompuBox’ stats showed that he landed with 212 of the 319 left jabs he threw, but regardless of that he was unable to drop Gonzalez.
