1979-04-08 [[Jorge Lujan]] w rsc 15 (15) [[Cleo Garcia]], Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Davy Pearl. With little action having occurred at the halfway stage, Lujan (117½) decidedly picked up the pace to put Garcia (118) under a lot more pressure, opening up a cut above the challenger’s right eye in the tenth round. Although Garcia hit back on occasion he was getting tired, and it was no surprise when he was knocked down in the 14th following a straight left-right cross. Coming into the 15th Garcia was noticeably exhausted, and two straight rights floored him again before the referee called it off with 31 seconds of the contest remaining.
