1998-05-16 Erik Morales w rsc 2 Jose Luis Bueno, Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Marty Sammon. Not respecting the champion’s reputation Bueno (121¾) tore into Morales (121¾) at the bell unloading combinations, but by the end of the round he was under great pressure after taking some heavy punches. Morales went after his man in the second, dropping him with a right-left-right, but Bueno was quickly up only to be sent crashing to the canvas by a short right. With Bueno out to the world, the referee did not even bother to take up the count when calling it off on the 1.19 mark.
