1997-12-13 Johnny Tapia w pts 12 Andy Agosto, The Amphitheatre, Pompano Beach, Florida, USA - IBF/WBO. Referee: Frank Santore. Scorecards: 120-108, 117-111, 119-109. Showing great courage and ability in the art of survival, the southpaw Agosto (115) somehow stayed in the fight when taking every punch Tapia (115) could muster without looking to go down. It really was not a contest with the champion being in total control, but the crowd enjoyed it and heartily applauded the Puerto Rican at the final bell.
