1979-09-28 [[Wilfredo Gomez]] w rsc 10 (15) [[Carlos Mendoza]], Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Richard Greene. After having difficulty making the weight it was little wonder that Gomez (122) was not his normal self, but that in itself should not detract from the excellent fight waged by Mendoza (120½). He was right in the mix until the ninth round, having given the champion all he could handle before being twice downed with heavy head punches in the tenth and then rescued by the referee on the 2.29 mark when being punched all over the place without reply.
