1994-03-02 Wilfredo Vazquez w rsc 1 Yuichi Kasai, Metropolitan Gym, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Given a world title chance, the unbeaten Kasai (122) was expected to dislodge the veteran champion. However, it did not turn out that way. Quickly under pressure, Kasai was put down by a right cross early on, and although beating the count he 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.
