1994-12-10 [[Jorge Castro]] w rsc 9 [[John David Jackson]], Baseball Stadium, Monterrey, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Although Jackson (160) was badly shaken up by the champion in the opening session, he got his act together in the next seven rounds, doing almost as he pleased, but could not put the Argentinian on the floor. In the seventh, Castro (160) was cut over both eyes and in the eighth he was hammered from pillar to post, but Jackson still could not finish the job despite hitting his man with everything at his disposal. In trouble at the start of the ninth and floundering on the ropes with the referee almost coming to his rescue, out of the blue Castro dropped the oncoming Jackson with a mighty left hook that came up from the floor. Somehow getting to his feet, Jackson was a beaten man and after being allowed to continue he was put down twice more, which saw him stopped on the three knockdowns in a round ruling with 17 seconds of the session remaining.
