2001-09-29 Joel Casamayor w rsc 8 Joe Morales, Miccosukee Gaming Casino, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. After starting as though it was an exhibition bout, Casamayor (130) got going in the second round, a solid right hook opening up a cut on the challenger’s left eye, while jabs and southpaw left crosses thudded home. Although controlling the fight with some ease it was not until the eighth that Casamayor began to open up again, Morales (129½) being staggered by a big right hand, and when the damage to his left eye worsened the referee called it off on the 2.04 mark.
