Given a world title chance the unbeaten Kasai (122) was expected to dislodge the veteran champion, but it did not turn out that way as he was put down by a right cross early on and after beating the count was downed again by a right uppercut. On his feet once more, he immediately ran into trouble as Vazquez (122) hit him with all he had, leaving the referee with no choice but to call off proceedings at 2.05 of the first round.
