1978-07-02 Eusebio Pedroza w rsc 12 (15) Ernesto Herrera, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Dominating proceedings from the start, Pedroza (126) was just too fast and ring-wise for the plodding challenger who appeared bewildered at times, especially when he was being measured up for volleys of lefts and rights. Knocked down in the fourth when a right-left-right put him on the seat of his pants, Herrera (125¾) somehow survived until the 12th. It was in that session that the referee had finally seen enough, calling time with just two seconds of the round remaining.
