2005-09-25 Hozumi Hasegawa w rsc 7 Gerardo Martinez, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. A late replacement for Diego Morales, the challenger was up against it from the start as Hasegawa (117¼) scored heavily with right-left combinations and in the third round he was dropped by a southpaw right hook to the head. Although Martinez (117½) got himself up he was outspeeded and outpunched the rest of the way and in the seventh it was no surprise when he was floored three times before being rescued by the referee on the 2.18 mark.
