  3. ^ The fight was originally announced as a split draw, Banuelos being awarded the victory 29–28 on referee Cecil Peoples' scorecard, and the two others being 30–27 for Tapia and a 28–28 draw, though a scorecard error was realized, and corrected to the ultimate outcome of a split decision for Manny Tapia.
  4. ^ For the Bantamweight Championship.
  5. ^ For the Lightweight Championship. This fight, however, was not without controversy. In the third round, McCullough dropped Varner with a looping right hook, and proceeded to land effective ground and pound. The initial right hook knocked Varner's mouthpiece out, and after both fighters got back up to their feet, Varner signaled to the referee for a time-out for him to retrieve his mouthpiece. Steve Mazzagatti, the referee, granted Varner about 30 seconds to get his mouthpiece, which gave him time to recover.
  6. ^ For the Welterweight Championship.
