1978-02-18 Sam Serrano w pts 15 Mario Martinez, Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 116-111, 117-110, 118-112. Dominating the fight with his fast hands and hitting Martinez (130) almost at will at times, the champion was never extended by a man who was seemingly more intent on staying the distance. Afterwards, Serrano (129½) said that every time he closed in for the kayo Martinez backed off, but the fact that he was unable to take his man out merely emphasised his lack of power.
