1979-03-10 Danny Lopez w co 2 (15) Roberto Castanon, Salt Palace, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Swarming all over Lopez (125¾) from the opening bell, Castanon (125¾) found the champion easy to hit despite him having a big reach advantage, and surged through the punches coming his way to get his own blows off. The second round saw a transformation as Lopez, now into his stride, measured Castanon with terrific rights to the jaw that dropped him for the mandatory ‘eight’. Back on his feet, Castanon landed a cracking right to the head before being driven to his knees to be counted out by a straight left followed by a solid right to the jaw. The finish was timed at 2.57.
