2001-04-06 Kermin Guardia w pts 12 Juan Alfonso Keb Baas, Zamna Poliforum, Merida, Mexico - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Scorecards: 115-112, 115-112, 115-111. Coming back after 18 months out of the ring to retain his title for the third time, Guardia (105) dictated the fight for the first six rounds before Keb Baas (105) came back strongly to make real go of it. However, all the good work achieved was undone when Keb Baas was dropped twice in the ninth session, but it was still a tough one for the champion. With Guardia inactive and unlikely to fight at the weight again, Jorge Mata, who had won the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title following a ninth-round stoppage win over Reynaldo Frutos at the Son Moix Municipal Sports Hall, Palma De Mallorca, Spain on 29 June 2002, was awarded the WBO title early in November 2002 after Guardia, promised a fast route to the WBO light-flyweight title, had handed back his belt.
