1999-02-05 Antonio Cermeno w co 2 Eddy Saenz, Jai-Alai Fronton, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Max Parker Jr. Following a feeling-out period, the second round opened with Saenz (126), a southpaw, landing with left-right-left combinations and several straight lefts to the head before Cermeno (126) hit back with rights to the head to take the challenger to the ropes. By now in full swing Cermeno pinned Saenz in a corner, and after being hit by a left hook to the body the latter crashed down to be counted out with five seconds of the session remaining.
