1981-12-19 Juan Herrera w rsc 7 (15) Betulio Gonzalez, Carte Clara Stadium, Merida, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Cut as early as the second round, Gonzalez (112), who later claimed that the referee put him under pressure by constantly threatening him with a medical stoppage, was dominated by Herrera (112) in all rounds bar the second, which was even. Eventually, the challenger’s injuries worsened enough for the ring physician to advise the third man to call the fight off at 1.22 of the seventh round.
