1979-11-17 [[Eusebio Pedroza]] w rsc 11 (15) [[Johnny Aba]], Murray Stadium, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Outjabbing Aba (125) from the opening bell, the champion made good use of his reach advantage to pick his rival apart before going up the gears. From the fourth round Pedroza (126) was in complete control and was outclassing Aba, who was throwing punches at a moving target without much success and was gradually being demoralised. As the points piled up it was obvious that Aba was weakening and in the 11th, having been knocked out of the ring from a barrage of punches, the referee rescued him with a minute of the round remaining.
