2005-11-19 Roberto Vasquez w pts 12 Nerys Espinoza, Figali Convention Centre, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-110, 118-107. Knocked down in the third round despite having made a bright start, Vasquez (108) quickly recovered to dominate with southpaw jabs and crosses. As the fight went into the later stages it was obvious that Espinoza (108) would need to find a winning punch, but he went further behind when a cracking left to the body dropped him in the tenth. From thereon Vasquez controlled the action as Espinoza became more and more open to counters as he looked to find a winning punch.
