1990-09-30 Marcos Villasana w rsc 8 Javier Marquez, Calafia Bullring, Mexicali, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Dominating the opening two rounds the challenger jabbed and moved well, but when he was cut on the left eye towards the end of the second his game plan went out of the window. Picking it up in the fourth, Villasana (126) was now in command of the fight. By then, with Marquez (126) a spent force, he was dropped by a left to the liver late in the seventh before the referee saved him from further punishment at 1.56 of the eighth.
