1980-10-04 [[Eusebio Pedroza]] w pts l5 [[Rocky Lockridge]], Playboy Club, McAfee, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 147-141, 149-139, 142-144. Using his normal tactic of moving, jabbing and countering in the early rounds, the champion was rocked in the fifth and seventh before cutting loose in the eighth to hurt Lockridge (126) and get a grip on his title. From thereon the fight appeared to slide away from Lockridge as Pedroza (126) produced more work, much of it on the inside. This was seen to good effect in the last four sessions as Pedroza turned on the gas before boxing his way through to the final bell as Lockridge gave it one last, mighty effort.
