1996-06-29 Ricardo Lopez w rsc 3 Kitichai Preecha, Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA - WBC. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Fighting in 121 degrees was not ideal, but probably explained why Lopez (105) looked to get Preecha (104) out of there quickly. Into the third round, and after having a good look at the challenger, Lopez hurt his rival with a body punch before a perfect one-two, followed by a left uppercut, left the challenger on the floor to be rescued by the referee on the 1.46 mark.
