2000-12-02 Ricardo Lopez w rsc 3 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Richard Steele. Bringing very little to the argument, having lost three of his last seven fights, Sor Vorapin (107½) proved an easy mark for Lopez (107½) and was rescued by the referee at 2.11 of the third round. Following a left to the body, Lopez, who equalled Rocky Marciano’s record of 49 wins without loss on the result, let go a whole range of blows which saw the Thai not fighting back prior to the intervention.
