1981-03-28 Santos Laciar w rtd 7 (15) Peter Mathebula, Orlando Stadium, Soweto, South Africa - WBA. Referee: Stanley Berg. Despite making a good start, Mathebula (111½), who was cut in the third and dropped in the fifth, fell apart when hurt by body blows. Then, after being floored again by the challenging Laciar (111¾) in the seventh he signalled to the referee that he wanted out, due to another cut over the left eye which made it difficult for him to see. The finish was timed at 2.02.
