2010-08-14 Donnie Nietes w pts 12 Mario Rodriguez, Luis Estrada Medina Auditorium, Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 116-112.

Raul Garcia won the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title when outpointing Luis De La Rosa over 12 rounds at the Convention Centre, Cartagena, Colombia on 30 October.

On 25 February 2011, just two weeks before Nietes was due to defend against Garcia, he relinquished the title when having difficulty making the weight. Following that, Garcia was upgraded to full championship status.
