1992-12-05 Wilfredo Vazquez w rsc 8 Thierry Jacob, Sports Palace, Berck Sur Mer, France - WBA. Referee: Uriel Aguilera. Although the southpaw challenger made an impressive start, outboxing Vazquez (122) for the first five rounds while using quick flurries, an occasional solid left hand and no little skill, a heavy right opened up a cut on his left eye in the sixth that ultimately changed the course of the fight. Fighting like a demon in the seventh as the cut worsened it was obvious that Jacob (121¼) was on borrowed time, and after making another inspection the referee called it off after 52 seconds of the eighth.
