2004-06-05 Jose Luis Castillo w pts 12 Juan Lazcano, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Weeks. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-112, 117-111. Referee: Tony Weeks. Contesting the title vacated by Floyd Mayweather, Castillo (134½) regained his old crown after outscoring Lazcano (135) at the end of 12 tough rounds. There were no knockdowns, but it was hard and both men gave it their best shot before the judges decided that the higher work rate of Castillo warranted victory. Although Lazcano got in some heavy blows from either hand to take rounds five, six and seven and showed faster hand speed, it was the effective work on the inside by Castillo, especially over the last five sessions that swung it for him. On winning, Castillo was awarded The Ring magazine championship belt.
