1981-12-05 Eusebio Pedroza w co 5 (15) Bashew Sibaca, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Although Sibaca (124) threw plenty of punches, the champion made a great many of them miss adroitly as he went to work with the left jab. After cruising through the first four rounds, in the fifth Pedroza (126) suddenly switched into top gear and as Sibaca tried to fight back he was hit by a terrific right uppecut under the heart before being dropped by a right to the head. Despite desperately trying to push himself up, Sibaca was counted out on the 1.46 mark.
