2003-01-18 Fernando Montiel w co 2 Roy Doliguez, Baseball Auditorium, Los Mochis, Mexico - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Having won the WBO Asian-Pacific title at the weight, the southpaw Doliguez (114½) was given a crack at Montiel (115) regardless of the fact that he had failed to win his last three contests. Despite that, it almost paid off for him early on as he dropped the showboating champion with a countering left uppercut to the jaw. Again, early in the second round Doliguez decked Montiel, only this time it was ruled a slip. Realising that he had a dangerous man in front of him Montiel was forced into action and picking up the pace he dropped Doliguez three times in the second session, the final occasion seeing the latter counted out on the 2.31 mark.
