2004-04-24 Jorge Arce w co 5 Melchor Cob Castro, Chiapas Fair Rooster Theatre, Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. This much anticipated rematch saw the champion leave nothing to chance this time round and he was soon in the thick of it as he looked to dispatch Cob Castro (107¾) inside the distance. Badly rocked in the third round, Cob Castro was dropped at the end of the fourth as Arce (107¾) opened up again before being knocked out by a terrific left hook to the body at 1.57 of the fifth. The southpaw veteran had his moments, but this time round found Arce just too much to handle.
