1993-12-18 Ricardo Lopez w co 11 Manny Melchor, Caesar’s Palace, Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. On top throughout, Lopez (104¾), who produced every punch in the book, cut the challenger’s right eye in the sixth round and generally looked like a man on a mission, the biggest surprise being that Melchor (105) remained upright for so long. However, following some heavy jabs, a right cross landed plumb on the Filipino’s jaw in round 11 and he was counted out with a minute of the session still remaining.
