1988-11-29 Orlando Canizales w co 1 Jimmy Navarro, Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas, USA - IBF. Referee: Barry Yeats. Despite not having fought for a year, Navarro (117½) was given a crack at Canizales (118) and was blasted out after just 149 seconds. Right from the opening bell the challenger was hunted down, being quickly dropped by a couple of left hooks. Although Navarro got up almost immediately he was on shaky legs, another left hook again despatched him to the canvas, face down, where he was counted out.
