1978-09-15 Jorge Lujan w pts 15 Alberto Davila, The Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Scorecards: 146-143, 146-143, 146-142. Once again boxing on the back foot, Lujan (117¾) had far too much skill for the aggressive, but outreached Davila (117¼), picking up points throughout in a fight that never really looked like ending early. Accepting that he did not need to take risks against the hustling, bustling Davila, the champion was content to merely box his way to victory, always being in control despite the points margin not entirely reflecting that.
