2002-08-24 Nelson Dieppa tdraw 2 John Alberto Molina, Roberto Clemente Walker Stadium, Carolina, Puerto Rico - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. With the champion, Dieppa (108), leading with nice sharp jabs and Molina (108), at 5’2”, dipping low to get inside this fight was an accident waiting to happen. The signs were there when towards the end of the opening round heads came together, but in the second session the contest was called off after just 22 seconds. This followed another head clash that opened up a huge cut on the champion’s head, ensuring that the fight was over.

On 11 July 2003, Kermin Guardia won the ‘interim’ title when outpointing Molina over 12 rounds at the Municipal Coliseum, Barranquilla, Colombia to earn himself a shot at Dieppa.
