1990-05-30 Luisito Espinosa w rtd 8 Hurley Snead, Rajadamnern Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Taking Snead (118) apart with a clinical display of punching despite having difficulty making the weight, Espinosa (118) floored the challenger three times, in the first, second and eighth rounds. Eventually, Snead was retired on his stool prior to the start of the ninth, completely out of ideas and carrying a badly swollen right eye.
