1987-07-26 Antonio Esparragoza w rsc 10 (15) Pascual Aranda, The Astrodome, Houston, Texas, USA - WBA. Referee: Lou Moret. Displaying a great defence against a tough challenger, Esparragoza (125½) weathered the deluge of blows to head and body coming his way over the first half of the contest before moving up a gear to batter his rival down. Aranda (125) was no mug, but having had his left eye cut and being belted by an array of short lefts to the head he was dropped in the tenth and rescued by the referee at 2.36 of the round. At the WBA convention in October, it was decided by the membership that from then on all world title bouts held under their banner would be contested over 12 rounds.
