1980-12-13 [[Salvador Sanchez]] w pts 15 [[Juan Laporte]], County Coliseum, El Paso, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Davy Pearl. Scorecards: 147-140, 146-139, 148-142. Showing great stamina, Sanchez (126) continued to pressure Laporte (124½) throughout and even though each round was fiercely contested he appeared to have the edge with accurate shots as opposed to the often wild punches that the challenger threw. Although Laporte was always trying and nailed Sanchez on occasion it was mainly due to the champion’s evasiveness that he was not caught more often. It was in the middle rounds that Sanchez really showed his class as he picked up points with the jab and cracked in right hands for good measure. Laporte, though, was never out of it, and right to the final bell he was looking to end matters summarily.
