1989-09-22 Antonio Esparragoza w co 5 Eduardo Montoya, Calafia Bullring, Mexicali, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Starting quicker than normal, after the hard-hitting Esparragoza (126) began dishing out punishment as early as the second round, by the third his slashing fists had inflicted a cut over the challenger’s left eye which was followed by a knockdown in the fourth. The fifth saw Esparragoza move in quickly to take advantage of his supremacy, and having prepared the ground three successive left-right combinations to the head and body saw Montoya (125¾) counted out on the 1.13 mark.
