2000-03-04 [[Clarence Adams]] w pts 12 [[Nestor Garza]], Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 118-108, 116-110, 116-110. Taking weight off one time too many effectively lost the fight for the champion before a punch was thrown, but Adams (122) still had to win and made a great start when he floored Garza (122) with a terrific left hook midway through the first round. Although Garza got up and back into the fight he was cut over the right eye in the third, dropped again in the fifth by left-right combinations and was in trouble on several occasions before being judged a wide loser. A big outsider, the sharp punching and sleek skills of Adams were just too much for a weakened Garza to handle.
