1993-09-19 [[Ricardo Lopez]] w rsc 11 [[Toto Pongsawang]], Capitol Discotheque, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Carrying the fight from the opening bell with quicksilver lefts and rights, hooks and combinations, Lopez (103½) battered the unfortunate Pongsawang (102) to defeat at 2.30 of the 11th after the latter had struggled to his feet and was rescued by the third man. By that time the tall southpaw, despite showing the heart of a lion had become a punch bag, and although he had won a couple of early rounds he was unable to take advantage of his height and reach, finishing with a badly swollen face and both eyes closed.
