1999-09-10 [[Javier Castillejo]] w rsc 7 [[Paolo Roberto]], Europa Pavilion, Leganes, Spain - WBC. Referee: Daniel Van De Wiele. Although Roberto (154) started well with the southpaw right jab, the champion was content to take his time before picking it up in the fourth round when landing hard blows to the body. The tactic paid off as Roberto was visibly pained and in the fifth and sixth Castillejo (153¾) was totally dominant as he fired in blows almost at will to leave the challenger. It could not continue in this manner and following a three-punch combination that left Roberto all at sea the referee called it off at 1.47 of the seventh to save the latter from taking unnecessary punishment.
