2005-04-22 [[Joan Guzman]] w pts 12 [[Fernando Beltran]], Dodge Arena, Hidalgo, Texas, USA - WBO. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-112, 117-111. Although Beltran (121) won four rounds on the judges’ cards, he was a clear loser as the much faster champion successfully defended his title going away. Holding his hands low at times and often taunting his tough southpaw rival, Guzman (121) was just too quick, firing in bursts of punches before getting out of range. The frustrated Mexican kept trying to land powerful blows, but Guzman was able to bob and weave and duck his way out of trouble throughout when cornered or up against the ropes. There were no knockdowns. Guzman relinquished the WBO title in July after deciding to move up a weight class.
