1975-05-31 Alexis Arguello w rsc 2 (15) Rigoberto Riasco, National Baseball Stadium, Managua, Nicaragua - WBA. Referee: Ferly Carpentier. Never given a chance, the challenger was under siege from the start as a totally dominant Arguello (126) ripped in punches from head to body to take an early ascendancy. With Arguello immediately picking it up in the second Riasco (126) was soon taken apart, and after being floored he was stumbling around the ring with his arms down when he was rescued by the referee on the 2.26 mark.
