1999-12-17 Javier Castillejo w rsc 7 Michael Rask, Cubierta Bullring, Leganes, Spain - WBC. Referee: Alfred Asaro. Never out of control for one moment, the champion was soon busying himself and had hurt Rask (153¼) with a big left uppercut at the end of the first round before going for the body in the next couple of sessions. By the fourth, with Rask cut on the left eye, Castillejo (154) was opening up with solid shots to head and body and at the end of the sixth the Dane was saved by the bell after being hurt by heavy lefts and rights to the head. With Castillejo spearing Rask with accurate jabs in the seventh and the latter now cut over the right eye as well as the left the referee halted the contest at 1.41 on the advice of the ringside doctor.
