2000-08-12 Beibis Mendoza w disq 7 Rosendo Alvarez, Paris Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Billed for the vacant title after Pichit Chor Siriwat was unavailable to meet Alvarez (108), Mendoza (107½) was drafted in with winner asked to defend against the Thai within 120 days. Alvarez was expected to win, but not only was he outpunched for much of the fight he was warned so many times for going below the belt that, at 1.02 of the seventh, the referee had seen enough and disqualified him.
