2005-04-29 [[Roberto Vasquez]] w rsc 10 [[Beibis Mendoza]], Figali Convention Centre, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon. Contesting the vacant title, both men gave it everything to produce one of the best fights of the year before the younger Vasquez (108), a southpaw, sealed victory in the tenth. Although Vasquez at times boxed well within himself he was often drawn into a brawl by Mendoza (108) as the fight swung back and forth, and by the sixth the former, with both eyes swelling badly, looked as though he might not make it. However, he hung in there to work the veteran’s body and got back to his boxing before being sucked into another war of attrition. The contest finally turned Vasquez’s way in the tenth when he twice dropped Mendoza, firstly with a body punch and then with a cracking left hook to the jaw, which saw the referee call the fight off at 2.03 of the round.
