1979-10-26 Wilfredo Gomez w rsc 5 (15) Nicky Perez, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Despite allowing Perez (120) to dictate the opening two rounds, Gomez (122) went to work in the third and dropped the challenger with a heavy left hook in the next session. Into the fifth Perez was dropped three more times, the last time on the bell, and after the referee decided that he had seen enough he put the latter out of his misery.
