1991-03-25 Melchor Cob Castro w rtd 10 Rolando Pascua, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Having to lose ten pounds in four days left Pascua (107¾) drained. Although he was in the fight for quite a while when the challenger’s punches began to get to him after the halfway stage the end was in sight. From the eighth onwards Pascua shifted a fair amount of punishment, and having taken a big right hand to the jaw he turned his back on Cob Castro (107¾), retiring himself at 1.59 of the tenth round.
