2005-02-18 Antonio Margarito w rsc 10 Sebastian Lujan, Boardwalk Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: David Fields. Up until the third round it was anybody’s fight, but once the slow-starting champion got himself going when pumping out the left jab and getting his uppercut on the move Lujan (146) was up against it. By the fifth Margarito (147) was working well to the body, and in the sixth according to the ‘CompuBox’ stats he threw a staggering 144 punches, landing with 54 of them. Things were not going well for Lujan. After being rocked badly in the tenth, when the referee noticed that part of his left ear was flapping the fight was called off with three seconds of the session remaining.
