1999-12-18 Isidro Garcia w pts 12 Jose Lopez, Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 115-115. After Alejandro Montiel pulled out of a fight with Lopez (112) for the vacant title, a soft looking Garcia (112) stepped up to outscore him. Unable to get his jab going and lacking variety, Lopez, who had been messed about following six cancellations, found himself outspeeded by the two-handed, energetic Garcia and the fight slipped away from him.
