1981-12-05 Rafael Pedroza w pts 15 Gustavo Ballas, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 145-141, 145-142, 142-146. Both men gave everything, it being a shame that one of them had to lose. However, with it being noticeable that the right hand of Ballas (115) was giving him trouble almost from the start, Pedroza (115), the challenger, took confidence from that to edge the points.
