1978-07-02 [[Eusebio Pedroza]] w rsc 12 (15) [[Ernesto Herrera]], New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Dominating proceedings from the start, Pedroza (126) was just too fast and ringwise for the plodding challenger who appeared bewildered at times and unable to respond, especially when he was being measured up for volleys of lefts and rights. Knocked down in the fourth when a right-left-right put him on the seat of his pants, Herrera (125¾) somehow survived until the 12th when backed against the ropes under a ceaseless flow of punches the referee had finally seen enough and called time with just two seconds of the round remaining.
