1982-03-27 [[Wilfredo Gomez]] w rsc 6 (15) [[Juan Meza]], Playboy Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Harold Valan. Coming back from an unsuccessful crack at the WBC featherweight title and two catchweight victories, Gomez (121¼) again showed his class and power, especially to the body, when he subjected Meza (120) to a one-sided beating despite a lack of knockdowns. Unable to keep Gomez at bay due to his lack of punch power and volume the challenger was always under pressure, and at 2.28 of the sixth he was rescued by the referee after he had been driven into a corner and was being pounded non-stop to head and body without reply.
