1998-02-21 Juan Carlos Gomez w pts 12 Marcelo Dominguez, Pan America Stadium, Mar Del Plata, Argentina - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 115-113. In his sixth defence, Dominguez (190) came up against the Cuban-born Gomez (189½) and was outpointed in what was a tough fight for both men. Cut over the left eye early on was not helpful to Dominguez’s cause and he also found it difficult to find a way through the challenger’s long-armed southpaw guard. Regardless of the problems he faced, Dominguez made Gomez fight every inch of the way and the last two rounds saw both men going blow for blow despite being extremely tired.
