1988-03-29 Lloyd Honeyghan w co 3 (12) Jorge Vaca, The Arena, Wembley, London, England - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Fighting like a man possessed, Honeyghan (146½) tore into Vaca (145¾), barely letting up, before inflicting a cut over the champion’s right eye in the opening two minutes. There was little science in his work, just slugging, and although Vaca complained that the cut had been caused by Honeyghan’s illegal use of the head it made little difference as the latter kept punching away. The third round saw Honeyghan begin to think about his boxing but he was soon back looking to take the Mexican out and towards the end of the session Vaca was finally dropped by clubbing right hands and counted out with just two seconds remaining.
