2001-11-10 [[Manny Pacquiao]] tdraw 6 [[Agapito Sanchez]], Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA - IBF/WBO. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 58-54, 57-55, 56-56. In an effort to unify two titles the fight between southpaw Pacquiao (120¼), the IBF champion, and the WBO’s Sanchez (120½) decided nothing when it went to the scorecards after the referee called it off at 1.12 of the sixth. This was following the doctor’s advice when Pacquiao was deemed unable to continue due to being badly cut over the right eye, an injury that occurred in the second round. Prior to that it had been a crude afair, with Sanchez deducted a point for landing low, using the glove and fighting wildly. He then lost another point in the fourth when both men fell over after Pacquiao had been hit low again and then seemingly kneed. When Sanchez was cut on the left eye in the fifth it was felt that with the harder-hitting Pacquiao going better he would take over, but that came to nothing when his eye damage worsened and the fight came to an end.
