2000-09-16 Joel Casamayor w rsc 5 Radford Beasley, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Vic Drakulich. 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 thudded into him. By now, the American was also cut over the left eye. Up against it in the fifth, Beasley surprisingly remained erect under the avalanche of blows coming his way until the referee brought the fight to a close after 52 seconds of the session had elapsed.
