1991-05-30 Luis Mendoza w co 7 Joao Cardoso, Sports Palace, Madrid, Spain - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Dominating the fight, Mendoza (121) used the jab to pick off the oncoming challenger before ending proceedings with 32 seconds left of round seven, when Cardoso (121) was counted out after being dropped by a heavy left hand. The Brazilian had earlier tasted the canvas, having been floored by a left-right uppercut in the fourth, and the finish came as no surprise.
