1978-04-29 Alexis Arguello w rsc 5 (15) Rey Tam, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Exercising caution during the early rounds, probing with the jab and pulling up the southpaw Tam (129¾) with solid counters, the hard-hitting champion started to get down to business in the fourth when he opened up with heavy blows to both head and body. Into the fifth, Arguello (129½) quickly staggered Tam with a left hook and poured in volleys of rights and lefts before the dazed Filipino turned away and the referee accepted that he was through for the night at 1.54 of the session.
