1978-04-08 Wilfredo Gomez w rsc 7 (15) Juan Antonio Lopez, Loubriel Stadium, Bayamon, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Zack Clayton. Boxing and punching with great precision, Gomez (122) got off to a good start against the tough Lopez (122), who was cut over the right eye in the fourth. Although Gomez wobbled the challenger on several occasions with head punches he was unable to put him down. However, there was a limit to the amount of punishment that even Lopez was able to take and unable to keep Gomez at bay the referee called brought matters to a close at 2.51 of the seventh round.
