1995-05-27 Jorge Castro w rsc 12 Anthony Andrews, Broward County Convention Centre, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Bernie Soto. Prior to the fight it was said that Andrews (158¼) was not a worthy challenger. However, after 11 tough rounds of leather throwing, and having met Castro (159¾) punch for punch throughout he clearly deserved his chance. Not only had he taken Castro’s best shots, but there was only one point between them on the cards. Coming out for the 12th both men continued to let the punches go, only this time Castro’s carried more sting, and with just 46 seconds of the fight remaining the referee stopped the action with Andrews an open target and being belted along the ropes from heavy blows to the head.
