1977-08-27 [[Sam Serrano]] w pts 15 [[Apollo Yoshio]], Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 149-136, 148-137, 149-136. Hampered by a huge height and reach disadvantage, Apollo (129¼), apart from landing a stunning right in the eighth, never really had much chance of dethroning the champion and went down heavily on the scorecards. Serrano (129) took the early sessions with the jab-and-move routine before increasing his momentum in the 11th after hurting Apollo, but was unable to finish inside the distance and the latter, standing up to a constant barrage of blows, somehow made it to the final bell.
