1977-09-10 [[Alfredo Escalera]] w pts 15 [[Sigfredo Rodriguez]], Roberto Clemente Coliseum,  San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 145-138, 144-142, 145-142. The opening ten rounds saw the challenger hard on his bike without throwing a meaningful punch, while Escalera (127) unwisely chased after him without success. That all changed in the tenth after Escalera sustained a cut on his left eye and Rodriguez (125), showing good hand speed, started to match his rival blow for blow down the stretch. Afterwards, Rodriguez was left to rue the fact that because he had woken up too late the title had escaped him.
