2005-06-25 [[Ivan Calderon]] w pts 12 [[Gerardo Verde]], Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Randy Neumann. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-111, 115-113. Making an efficient start, the champion boxed his way to the front against the tough Verde (103), who looked to cut his man down to size with body shots. Although the action slowed in the middle rounds, with Calderon (104) pecking away with southpaw rights, the last three sessions were all Verde as he tried to make up lost ground. Throwing solid rights and lefts at the back-pedalling Calderon, Verde came on strong, but unable to find a finishing blow despite swarming all over his rival he ultimately went down on points.
