1994-09-17 Ricardo Lopez w rsc 1 Surachai Saengmorakot, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Kenny Bayless. With only 13 fights behind him it was difficult to fathom why the WBC allowed Saengmorakot (105) to challenge an exceptional champion in Lopez (105), especially as he had not eaten for two days in order to make the weight. Down from the first punch of the fight, an overarm right, on getting up the Thai took a wide left hook that dropped him again. Up at a count of ‘five’, the referee called the action off with just 1.53 on the clock.
