1978-07-08 Sam Serrano w rsc 9 (15) Young-Ho Oh, Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Carrying a seven-inch reach advantage, Serrano (130) peppered the ever-advancing Oh {129¼), who was cut below the right eye in the fifth, with every punch in the book for the opening eight rounds, yet the game but fast-fading challenger was still there. His misery wouldn’t last much longer though. With about 30 seconds of the ninth remaining a short left hook dropped Oh for ‘nine’ and after getting up he was again put down, this time by a right uppercut. On his feet again at ‘nine’, the bell rang and appeared to have saved him, but the referee declared the fight to be over and that was that.
