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), up against the Cuban-born Gomez (189½), 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 had difficulty finding 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, the last two rounds seeing both men going blow for blow despite being extremely tired.
