2001-03-03 [[Rosendo Alvarez]] w pts 12 [[Beibis Mendoza]], Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Tony Weeks. Scorecards: 115-112, 114-113, 113-114. Lacking the low blows of their earlier fight, this one was very close, and had it not been for a point deducted from Mendoza (107) following an indiscretion in the third he would have kept his title. Ironically, it was Alvarez (108), whose good early work ultimately won him the title, who benefited.
