2000-05-20 William Joppy w rsc 1 Rito Ruvalcaba, Grand Casino, Tunica, Mississippi, USA - WBA. Referee: Fred Steinwinder. Up against the WBA’s mandatory challenger, Joppy (157¼) made a fast start when sending the hapless Mexican back on his heels from the first two blows of the fight. Although Ruvalcaba (155¾) remained upright it was clear that he was unlikely to be around much longer as Joppy wound up the punches and after slamming in three big rights that catapulted him off the ropes the referee stopped the contest with 67 seconds of the first round remaining.
