1999-05-08 Erik Morales w rtd 9 Juan Carlos Ramirez, Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Jay Nady. Down in the second round, twice in the third and again in the ninth, the brave Ramirez (122), who was also cut on the left eye, was finally retired on his stool by his corner when it was felt that he had taken far too many head punches from the hands of the champion. Morales (121½) had outpunched Ramirez consistently in every round, but despite that he had been unable to finish his man off.
