Line 1: Line 1:
1998-04-25 Gerry Penalosa tdraw 2 Joel Luna Zarate, Cuneta Astrodome, Manila, Philippines - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. In what was an unsatisfactory finish with barely any action having taken place, heads came together in the second round which left Penalosa (115) badly cut on the right eye. At that point, with 2.56 of the session completed, the ringside doctor advised the referee to halt the contest as in his opinion the champion’s cut was too bad for him to continue. Although extremely unlucky, as a mandatory challenger Zarate (113½) would get another opportunity.
