1978-09-09 Pipino Cuevas w rsc 2 (15) Pete Ranzany, Hughes Stadium, Sacramento, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. Coming to the ring with a good record, Ranzany (146) was determined to force the fight against the hard-hitting champion and he started by doing just that as both men let their punches go. However, after picking it up in the second where he left off in the first Ranzany found himself beaten to the punch and dropped by a solid left hook. Although getting up, Ranzany was quickly trapped against the ropes and sent down again by a right to the head. It was clear that the fight was almost over, and with Cuevas (146¼) tearing in for the kill as the dazed challenger found his feet for the second time the referee had seen enough and called a halt on the 1.57 mark.
