2005-08-13 Ricardo Mayorga w pts 12 Michele Piccirillo, United Centre, Chicago, Illinois, USA - WBC. Referee: Gerald Scott. Scorecards: 117-108, 117-110, 120-105. Contesting the vacant title, Mayorga (154) got himself up for this one, despite claiming that he was through with boxing after being beaten by Felix Trinidad some ten months earlier. Making a solid start, the crude, wild punching Mayorga dropped Piccirillo (154) twice in the second round and once in the fourth with heavy rights to the head and although the latter came back well in the fifth he was never able to do much other than fight in defensive mode. Even when Mayorga stalked rather than landing, Piccirillo was unable to take the fight to him and just before the final bell he was put down again, although no count was registered.
