2005-08-20 Roberto Vasquez w rsc 4 Jose Antonio Aguirre, Figali Convention Centre, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. Making a quick start, the challenger had Vasquez (108) down in the second round from what appeared to have been a punch but ruled a slip, before the latter came back with accurate southpaw combinations of his own to even matters up. Then, following an exchange in the fourth round, Aguirre (107½) pulled away with a nasty looking cut over the right eye, complaining that he had been butted. Although the referee ruled the clash to have been an accident and the ringside doctor determined that Aguirre could continue, when the latter, extremely incensed, turned his back on the third man the fight was promptly stopped on the 1.16 mark.
