1978-04-22 [[Carlos Zarate]] w rsc 13 (15) [[Andres Hernandez]], Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. In going further than any other of Zarate’s challengers, Hernandez (116½) used his speed to keep out of harms way, but was never a real threat as he lacked the power to hurt Zarate (118), even though the latter had trouble in making the weight. Always stalking his man, Zarate cut Hernandez over the right eye in the third round, floored him in the fifth and eventually, when the injury worsened, his sustained attacks saw the referee stopping the contest at 1.34 of the 13th session.
