2005-04-30 Hugo Fidel Cazares w tdec 10 Nelson Dieppa, Jose Miguel Agrelot Coliseum, Hato Rey, Puerto Rico - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 96-94, 96-94, 98-92. Looking anything but convincing in the first four rounds as Cazares (107¾) confused him with his awkward southpaw style and roundhouse punches, the champion began to look more comfortable in the fifth and sixth, but was still unable to make any headway. With Cazares flying in head down and occasionally changing his stance, Dieppa (108) found it difficult not only to get his jabs off but to find his way inside where he could go to work without fear of being butted. Although classified as accidental, it was a butt that opened up a nasty cut on Dieppa’s forehead in the seventh and when heads clashed in the ninth he was left with a bad cut on the right eye. At 2.15 of the tenth, with Dieppa’s face a bloody mess, the referee was forced to call it off on the advice of the doctor and Cazares, who was leading on all three cards, was declared the winner.
