1993-02-22 Julio Cesar Vasquez w co 1 Aquilino Asprilla, The Superdome, Mar Del Plata, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Making his first defence, Vasquez (154) wasted little time when facing up to Asprilla (153¼) and after a few perfunctory exchanges the champion opened up with a barrage of blows from both hands before a left to the jaw sent the Panamanian down to be counted out after just 45 seconds. Although Asprilla had been stopped previously he was expected to give Vasquez a bit of a test, but was bewildered by the latter’s southpaw stance.
