1981-04-04 Sergio Victor Palma w pts 15 Leonardo Cruz, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Nate Morgan. Scorecards: 149-138, 148-141, 149-142. In command throughout, apart from a couple of middle rounds where he was beaten to the punch on the inside, Palma (121) soon put that behind him as he continued to force Cruz (122) on the defensive. There were no knockdowns, mainly due to the challenger’s toughness, although he was forced to absorb some heavy body shots over the last four sessions.
