2000-05-08 Paul Spadafora w pts 12 Joel Perez, IC Light Amphitheatre, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - IBF. Referee: Ernie Sharif. Scorecards: 119-108, 120-107, 119-108. In yet another fight in which there was barely a challenge to his title, Spadafora (135) merely sent in southpaw jabs at leisure and even when Perez (135) went down in the fourth it was more from a slip than a punch. Occasionally Spadafora would follow the jab up with heavy lefts, but he was virtually one-paced and seemed content to allow the limited Perez to stay in the fight without taking any risks.
