2000-12-16 [[Juan Carlos Gomez]] w rsc 10 [[Jorge Castro]], Gruga Hall, Essen, Germany - WBC. Referee: Larry O’Connell. Starting as he meant to carry on, Gomez (189) had his southpaw right jab in Castro’s face right from the off and for round after round the latter was pounded by a steady array of blows to head and body without looking to go down. The problem was that Castro (183) was not winning anything and at the end of the eighth the referee allowed him to carry on after the doctor had given the all-clear. The same thing happened at the end of the ninth, but in the tenth Gomez decided enough was enough and after dropping Castro with a big left to the jaw the referee stopped the contest at 1.56 of the session even though the former WBA middleweight champion was back on his feet. For record purposes alone, Gomez was deducted a point in the eighth for going low.
