1998-12-18 [[Ruben Sanchez Leon]] w pts 12 [[Salvatore Fanni]], Sports Palace, Cagliari, Italy - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz. Scorecards: 115-112, 115-112, 114-115. Making his first defence, Sanchez Leon (112) made a terrific start when dropping Fanni (111¼) with a big left in the opening round and seemed well on his way to a quick win, especially with the latter carrying damage to his right arm that effectively weakened his chances considerably. Showing great character, Fanni went on to win the next three sessions and even when he picked up cuts, some of them due to head clashes, he continued to give Sanchez Leon problems. As hard as he tried, however, Fanni was unable to get to the front and after losing the last two rounds his fate was sealed.
