2005-05-31 [[Israel Vazquez]] w pts 12 [[Armando Guerrero]], Ho-Chunk Sports & Expo Centre, Lynwood, Illinois, USA - IBF. Referee: John O’Brien. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 116-112. Making his second defence, Vazquez (121½) opened up aggressively, but found Guerrero (122) only too happy to match him punch for punch in a fast scrap that saw styles make for a good fight. While Vazquez possessed the shorter shots and jabbed well off the hook, the punch stats showed that the challenger landed more, but from distance. The last third of the contest saw Vazquez in control with the jab, and although still trying hard Guerrero finished in an exhausted state and well beaten.
