2010-03-06 Vic Darchinyan w pts 12 Rodrigo Guerrero, Agua Calianta Casino, Rancho Mirage, California, USA - WBC/WBA. Referee: Ramon Corona. Scorecards: 117-111, 120-108, 118-110.

On 8 May, Hugo Fidel Cazares outpointed Nobuo Nashiro over 12 rounds at the Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan to win the WBA ‘second tier’ title and despite the WBA and WBC continuing to recognise Darchinyan as their ‘senior’ champion at the weight, after he had won the IBO bantamweight title on 10 July to all intents and purposes he would be fighting in a higher weight division from there on. Bearing that in mind, Cazares should be recognised as the fully fledged WBA champion from that point onwards.
