1996-03-16 Ricardo Lopez w rsc 8 Ala Villamor, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Showing his vast repertoire of skills, Lopez (104½) effortlessly picked up points, jabbing and moving, to leave Villamor (105) punching thin air. In the eighth, the champion countered a loose left jab with a heavy left uppercut that left the Filipino stretched out and the referee not even bothering to pick up the count. The finish was timed at 40 seconds of the round.
