2012-04-21 Anselmo Moreno w rtd 8 David De La Mora, Don Haskins’ Centre, El Paso, Texas, USA - WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon.

On 7 July Hugo Ruiz made a successful defence of his WBA ‘interim’ title, stopping Jean Sampson in the ninth round of their contest at the Arturo C. Nahl Stadium, La Paz, Baja California, Mexico.

After Ruiz vacated the WBA ‘interim’ title in October to challenge Koki Kameda for the ‘second tier’ championship, Roberto Vasquez and John Mark Apolinario drew over 12 rounds at the Union Club, Colon, Argentina on 3 November in an effort to decide the vacancy. The contest between Kameda and Ruiz for the WBA ‘second tier’ title duly took place at the Bodymaker Coliseum, Osaka, Japan on 4 December, being won by the former on points over 12 rounds.
