1997-03-08 Danny Romero w co 6 Jaji Sibali, Convention Centre, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - IBF. Referee: Larry Chavez. Although Sibali (114¼) was impressive in the opening round it soon became apparent that he would be unable to match the power of Romero (114¼) as the latter went looking for a quick finish from the third onwards. Although competitive into the fifth, the challenger began to unravel as Romero got his punches off and in the sixth session a succession of heavy right hands smashed him to the canvas where he was counted out with 2.34 on the clock.
