2000-09-02 [[Adonis Rivas]] w pts 12 [[Joel Luna Zarate]], National Stadium, Managua, Nicaragua - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-113, 118-112. In what was a hard and bloody contest, Rivas (115) retained his title when holding his boxing together to run out a good winner over the determined Zarate (114). Starting slowly, Rivas was shaken up several times with solid rights and in the third round a clash of heads saw both men cut, but with the memory of Rivas’ last defence which went to a technical decision the referee allowed the fight to continue. Despite Zarate being cut over the left eye and Rivas’ vision being affected by blood running from his scalp, both men continued in good spirit, with the latter boxing on the back foot when needed. Although the 11th saw another head clash, which left Rivas bleeding from the forehead and Zarate cut over the right eye, they were allowed to continue with the latter making up some lost ground in the last two sessions.
