Do I need to parse History to get Original Value during Groovy custom listener?

I have a custom Groovy listener that will (when a certain IssueType is updated) look at a field (product version) and find all the tickets that have fixVersion equal to it. With those tickets, it will set the custom field (release) to be the same as the original ticket.

However, if I change the "product version" to a new value, the listener just sets the release field on a new set of tickets. I want to clear the old set of tickets first, but I am not sure how to get the original value of "product version" in the listener.

Is there a way to do this without parsing the History of a ticket?
