1994-11-12 Ricardo Lopez w rsc 8 Javier Varguez, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Dropping down a weight, the plodding Varguez (104¾) was no match for the brilliant Lopez (105) who punished him throughout. Outboxed, outpunched and out-thought, the challenger had no answer, it being a miracle he was still standing after taking a barrage of blows that sent him faltering into the ropes in the eighth round. However, having seen enough, the referee called a halt on the 1.33 mark.
