2004-12-28 Israel Vazquez w rsc 5 Artyon Simonyan, Sycuan Indian Resort & Casino, El Cajon, California, USA - IBF. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Much too fast for his challenger, Vazquez (121) consistently beat him to the punch with jabs and straight rights from the off and in the third round knocked him down twice with right hands and cut him under the left eye. Although there was a five-minute break to replace one of Vazquez’s gloves the result was inevitable and in the fifth Simonyan (121½) was dropped yet again by a heavy right. Although the Armenian got up and tried to fight back it was a hopeless task and with Vazquez at full throttle the referee called it off after 59 seconds of the session.
