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. Alvarez (108) ultimately won the title due to his better work in the earlier rounds.
