1999-10-23 [[Diego Corrales]] w rsc 7 [[Roberto Garcia]], MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Joe Cortez. Cut over the right eye in the third, having won the opening two rounds and rocking Corrales (129½), the champion began to fall away in the fifth and in the sixth he was badly hurt by hooks and dropped twice. By now it was clear to see that Garcia (129) had little left and after Corrales had banged in some big rights and short hooks, followed by a straight right that dropped the former heavily, the referee called it off with just 48 seconds of the seventh having elapsed.
