1978-10-21 [[Danny Lopez]] w disq 4 (15) [[Fel Clemente]], Sports Palace, Pesaro, Italy - WBC. Referee: Gujelmo Ajon. After holding his own for the opening three rounds, and taking the eye with some good punches to the champion’s head, Clemente (125¾) came under fire in the fourth as Lopez (125½) started to back him against the ropes where he could work him over with both hands. Unfortunately, this kind of action brought about a clash of heads, and with Lopez’s right eye bleeding profusely the referee disqualified Clemente at 2.15 of the round for butting.
