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 previous fight, had it not been for a point deducted from Mendoza (107) following an indiscretion in the third he would have remained champion. In what was a very close affair, Alvarez (108) ultimately won the title due to his better work in the earlier rounds.
