Although Beasley (129½) won the first round with good straight punches, by the second Casamayor (130) was beginning to find the range and following two solid left crosses the challenger was cut on the right eye. Throughout the third and fourth, it was apparent that Casamayor’s speed was just too much for Beasley as blinding barrages of blows constantly thuded into him and by now the American was also cut over the left eye. Looking to finish the job in the fifth, Casamayor launched punch after punch at Beasley, who surprisingly remained errect under the avalanche of blows coming his way until the referee had seen enough and brought closure after 52 seconds of the session had elapsed.
