1997-08-23 Wilfredo Vazquez w pts 12 Roque Cassiani, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBA. Referee: Carl Schroeder. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-112, 116-110. Despite winning clearly on the cards the champion was unable to dislodge Cassiani (125½), who proved to be a very tough customer when taking everything that was thrown at him and coming back for more. Indeed, immediately after a left hook slammed into his head Cassiani dropped Vazquez (126) with a right to the jaw early in the tenth, thus enforcing the mandatory ‘eight’ count. Although stunned, the champion battled on strongly through to the final bell.
