1978-09-15 Danny Lopez w co 2 (15) Juan Malvarez, The Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WBC. Referee: Marcello Bertini. Ripping holes in the champion’s defences with good shots going in from both hands, Malvarez (125½) made a great start which got even better when he decked Lopez (125½) with a right-left-right. Forced to take the mandatory ‘eight’, Lopez survived the round but was under a lot of pressure as Malvarez looked for a finish. Coming out for the second Lopez was again ambushed, this time by a cracking left hook, but in looking to get the job over quickly, Malvarez, walking straight on to a tremendous right to the jaw, was counted out on the 1.45 mark.
