1980-08-29 Julian Solis w pts 15 Jorge Lujan, Convention Hall, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Jimmy Rondeau. Scorecards: 144-142, 144-143, 144-148. Solis (117¾) fought a great fight to take the title from Lujan (118), scoring with both hands to pile up the points while the champion preferred to look for one shot. After ten rounds had elapsed, Lujan finally got the message that he was losing and from thereon he took the fight to Solis in determined fashion, but unable to stop his man he just could not do enough to make up the leeway and lost the split decision.
