1979-09-25 [[Danny Lopez]] w rsc 3 (15) [[Jose Caba]], Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. Defending for the eighth time, Lopez (125½) once again came through the punches to hang on to his title as Caba (126) became over confident and paid the price. Having found Lopez easy to hit in the opening two rounds the third session saw Caba under pressure as the champion began to pick his punches better, a flurry of blows putting him on to the ring apron for ‘eight’. Back in the ring Caba came under a hail of heavy blows from both hands, and after being stretched over the ropes before being floored again, at 1.41 the referee stopped the fight.
