1975-03-15 Alexis Arguello w rsc 8 (15) Leonel Hernandez, The Polyhedron, Caracas, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Ferny Carpentier. Continually under pressure Hernandez (125½) barely laid a glove on Arguello (126), being completely outclassed apart from several good shots stopping the latter in his tracks during the fourth round. It obviously did not help when Arguello ripped open a cut on Hernandez's right cheek moments after the fight had started, an injury that eventually required four stitches, and it was all downhill thereafter before the challenger was stopped in the eighth.
