Jorge Eliecer Julio vs Manny Pacquiao
Jorge Eliécer Julio Rocha (born April 4, 1969 in El Reten, Magdalena) is a former Colombian bantamweight best known to win the WBA and later the WBO title as a pro.
At the 1988 Summer Olympics he won a bronze medal in the men's Bantamweight category after losing to Aleksandar Hristov.
Julio turned pro in 1989 and won his first twenty-six fights, culminating on 9 October 1992 with a win over southpaw Eddie Cook for the WBA Bantamweight title. He lost the belt in a unanimous decision to Junior Jones in 1993 but was the first to knock Jones down.
He went on to capture the WBO Bantamweight title in 1998 but lost the belt in 2000 to Johnny Tapia. His career then began to go downhill and in 2002 he lost to Manny Pacquiao by TKO, and again in 2003 to Israel Vázquez.
