2004-04-17 [[Daniel Santos]] w pts 12 [[Michael Lerma]], Florida State Fairgrounds Entertainment Hall, Tampa, Florida, USA - WBO. Referee: Max Parker. Scorecards: 120-107, 120-107, 118-110. Although outboxing his fellow southpaw challenger in virtually every round and cutting him over the left eye in the third Santos (153½) was unable to find a finishing blow despite being just one punch away in the eighth. The lanky Lerma (153¼), nicknamed the ‘Body Snatcher’, with eight losses on his record really didn’t warrant a title shot and throughout the fight had great difficulty in pinning Santos down. The one time he did manage it was in the fifth, when getting off some solid shots, but Santos rode them well and was soon back in control with the jab.
