1997-05-23 Carlos Salazar w pts 12 Antonio Ruiz, Accion Sports Club, Roque, Chaco, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 117-113, 117-112, 118-112. In a return match, this time round Ruiz (112) was unable to get to grips with the skilful southpaw champion, although it was always competitive. Getting away well, Salazar (112) made the running in the opening rounds and while Ruiz was always fighting back he was falling behind on the cards. Knocked down in the eighth, Ruiz came on strongly to win three of the last four sessions but it was not enough to close the gap.
