1998-02-08 [[Enrique Sanchez]] w pts 12 [[Rafael Del Valle]], Isle of Capri Casino, Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA - WBA. Referee: Johnny Femia. Scorecards: 117-113, 116-111, 117-111. Contested for the title vacated by Antonio Cermeno both men were initially tentative, but the southpaw Sanchez (122) responded quicker and in round four put Del Valle (122) down with a short left to the jaw before pounding out a points win. Del Valle was a disappointment, putting it down to similarity in style, while Sanchez proved to be too fast and hungrier than a 30-year old who had seen better days.
