2001-01-19 Willie Jorrin w pts 12 Oscar Larios, ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Chuck Hassett. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 115-113. Although possibly winning seven of the first eight rounds, the champion faded somewhat as Larios (122) came on in the latter stages, nailing his rival with lefts and rights before running out of rounds required to clinch a victory. It was yet another close fight for Jorrin (122), who tended to throw fast and precise punches without ever sustaining the pressure needed to get on top of his opponent, and he was often guilty of straying low.
