1981-02-22 Lupe Pintor w pts 15 Jose Uziga, Sam Houston Coliseum, Houston, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Chris Jordan. Scorecards: 148-139, 148-136, 150-128. Making his sixth defence, Pintor (118) pounded out a wide points decision over Uziga (117½), who was on his bike for the whole 15 rounds while never once raising a fist in anger. The big surprise was that he was never off his feet despite being on the verge of a stoppage defeat in round five, ten, 11 and 13, which disappointed Pintor’s large army of fans.
