1999-06-07 [[Diego Morales]] w rtd 10 [[Victor Godoi]], Municipal Auditorium, Tijuana, Mexico - WBO. Referee: Robert Gonzalez. In his first defence, Godoi (115), who had great difficulty in making the weight, struggled to keep the younger Morales (112¾) at bay. Despite showing much bravery he gradually succumbed to exhaustion as the body punches took their effect before retiring in his corner at the end of the tenth round. Regardless of Godoi’s problems, Morales, a skilful and speedy southpaw, was good value for his victory.
