2002-11-01 Oscar Larios w rsc 1 Willie Jorrin, ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California, USA - WBC. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Roaring out at the opening bell, it was not long before Larios (122) caught up with Jorrin (122) and as the champion came off the ropes he was chinned by a crunching right uppercut which put him down heavily. After being given a seemingly slow count, Jorrin was back in the fray only to be met by more heavy punches coming his way. At one stage both men tripped over and went down, but it was now clear that this fight was not going to last much longer and after Jorrin had been hit by several unanswered blows that were followed up with a solid left hook he was rescued one minute and 28 seconds into the contest.
