2004-02-26 Joan Guzman w rsc 7 Agapito Sanchez, Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA - WBO. Referee: David Mendoza. In something of a grudge match, Guzman (121¾) went straight on to the attack against his challenger before two left hooks and a smashing right to the head sent the older man to the floor in the second round. Thereafter, it was all one way as Guzman handed Sanchez (121¾) a real beating, and at 1.05 of the seventh the referee, who by then had seen enough, pulled the former champion out of the fight. With both of Sanchez's eyes badly swollen, the referee’s decision was a wise one.
