1999-04-23 Jose Lopez Bueno w rsc 3 Ruben Sanchez Leon, Prince Felipe Pavilion, Zaragoza, Spain - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Despite lacking variety Lopez Bueno (111½) proved to possess a dangerous right hand, and in the second round he dumped the weight-drained Sanchez Leon (112) following a right over the top of a lazy left lead. Quick and sharp, the challenger got to work in the third, knocking his rival down twice more with the trademark right before the referee stepped in to save Sanchez Leon with 1.10 on the clock.
