1979-01-29 Pipino Cuevas w rsc 2 (15) Scott Clark, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Hardly warming up, the champion cruised through the opening session before going to work on the luckless Clark (145½) in the second and having his man over from a heavy left hook. After taking the mandatory ‘eight’ count, Clark did his best to hold off Cuevas (146), but was quickly put down again when another left hook slammed into his head. There was little doubt that Clark was badly dazed and although he got to his feet and was trying to fight back the referee quickly jumped in to rescue him with 45 seconds of the round remaining.
