1980-03-29 Eusebio Pedroza w rsc 9 (15) Juan Malvarez, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Vincent Rainone. Despite the fight being switched from Argentina due to financial problems, it did not take Pedroza (125½) long to work out his challenger.m Using the jab and right-hand counters to good advantage, Pedroza kept Malvarez (126) on the outside until cutting loose in the middle rounds. The end came when Malvarez, being battered almost at will and having sustained a variety of cuts, was rescued by the referee at 1.10 of the ninth round.
