2004-11-04 [[Juan Diaz]] w pts 12 [[Julien Lorcy]], SBC Centre, San Antonio, Texas, USA - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 118-110. Starting like a pit bull and finishing like one, the champion never allowed the veteran Lorcy (133¾) any respite whatsoever as he came out of the blocks firing off lefts and rights to both head and body. While Lorcy had an effective ram-rod left jab it really was not enough to keep Diaz (135) at bay for any great length of time and because he lacked the power and variety he was forced to spend the majority of each round in defensive mode. That aside, the former two-time champion showed great resilience to keep going, finishing with both eyes badly swollen.
