2000-08-19 Isidro Garcia w rsc 6 Jose Rafael Sosa, Municipal Sports Centre, Cordoba, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Jose Rivera. Making his first defence, Garcia (111¾) was far too busy for Sosa (111¾), who apart from the fourth round was consistently pushed back and punished. The fight should have been halted in the fifth when Sosa was taking a steady barrage of blows, and when the referee finally stepped in to rescue the challenger at 1.13 of the sixth it was not a moment too soon.
