Career

On July 11, 2008, Santos competed in his first title fight since returning to action, facing Joachim Alcine for the WBA’s light middleweight championship. The first round was used by both fighters to study their adversary’s technique. Alcine began the second round aggressively, displaying accuracy in some of his punches. Santos focused on counter-attacking Alcine’s offense during the following two rounds. He continued using this pattern, establishing notable control of the fight’s tempo in the fifth episode. 

\In the sixth Santos connected a jab and followed it with a left hook, this combination injured Alcine who was unable to respond to the referee’s count, losing the contest by knockout. Subsequently, Santos was scheduled to defend the championship against Nobihiro Ishida on January 3, 2009. However, the fight was cancelled after it was suddenly suspended less than a month before the date. 

Don King proposed a unificatory contest against Sergio Martínez, who held the World Boxing Council’s interim championship. Santos refused the offer, citing that he had less than a month to train for it after a long period of inactivity, but expressed interest in organizing it on another date. Consequently, the pugilist was inactive for several months. King made an offer to Ricardo Mayorga, pursuing a fight between both pugilists in May, but the negotiations failed to advance. 

On August 17, 2009, Top Rank won a bid to organize a fight between Santos and the WBA’s first contender, Yuri Foreman. The promotion scheduled the contest to take place as part of the undercard of “Firepower”, a card featuring a fight between Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao in the main event. On that date, Santos lost the championship by unanimous decision to Foreman, with scores of 116–110 and 117–109 twice.
