2003-06-28 Eric Morel w pts 12 Isidro Garcia, Hiram Bithorn Stadium, Bayamon, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 116-110, 115-111, 115-111. In what was a much tougher fight than was expected for the champion, Garcia (111), always trying to work the body, may have lacked the power but he certainly did not lack heart and often proved it when walking through the punches on occasion. Carrying a fast and heavy jab, Morel (112) disappointed in not using it constantly and then moving as the fighter of old, often being content to match blows when he did not have to. Despite being docked points in the fifth and eighth rounds for low blows, the stumpy Garcia kept chugging away, forcing Morel to fight his fight and received good applause at the final bell.
