In a closely contested bout, Juan Carlos Reveco (21-1, 11 KOs) of Argentina defeated Francisco Rosas (20-7-2, 12 KOs) of Mexico to win the interim WBA World light flyweight title. The bout took place at the Palacio Municipal in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Rosas was very aggressive for most of the fight but Reveco circled and countered the aggression very well. Reveco seemed a bit fresher down the stretch and turned very aggressive in round twelve landing several flush shots. In the end the judges had it 115-113 twice for Reveco while the third judge had it 116-112 for Rosas. No knockdowns were scored in the bout.
