1978-02-15 [[Danny Lopez]] w rsc 6 (15) [[David Kotey]], Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Although the challenger made a fair start in taking the opening two rounds, it was clear in the third that Lopez (126), landing right after right, had too much power and aggression for his rival and by the fourth Kotey (125) was really feeling the heat. In the fifth Lopez continued to pour it on to head and body but was hurt by a socking right to the head before regrouping. About a minute into the sixth, Kotey was dropped by a fast right hand and after struggling to get off the floor he was being belted unmercifully on the ropes when the referee came to his rescue on the 1.18 mark.
