WBC World Super-bantamweight Champion Oscar Larios made the sixth defence of his championship against Northern Ireland's former WBC World Bantamweight Champion Wayne McCullough.

Despite McCullough believing that he had done enough to lift the title the judges felt otherwise, awarding the victory to Larios by unanimous decision.

Scores: Kazuo Abe 116-111 | Marcos Rosales 118-110 | Marty Sammon 118-109.

Enough people thought that the Irishman deserved a second crack at Larios, so, the two met again five months later at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
