1978-02-25 [[Carlos Zarate]] w rsc 8 (15) [[Alberto Davila]], Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Henry Elespuro. Starting well, Davila (117½) proved to be no respecter of reputations as he took the fight to the champion, actually hurting him before Zarate (118) got down to business in the sixth and seventh rounds when firing off heavy left hooks. The eighth session turned out to be the last when Zarate trapped his rival in a corner before dropping him with a heavy left hook. Although up at the count of four, with his right eye first damaged in the fifth bleeding badly, the referee called a halt to proceedings with 44 seconds left on the clock.
