1983-01-19 Roger Mayweather w co 8 (15) Sam Serrano, Hiram Bithorn Stadium, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. The aggressor throughout, Mayweather (130) showed no respect for the champion as he threw left jabs and fast rights at Serrano (130), who appeared to have lost all of his speed of past years. Serrano, who was cut over the left eye in the sixth, had some success with his counters but he was gradually being worn down and was nailed by solid punches in the seventh before being counted out at 2.13 of the eighth, having been dropped flat by a whistling right to the jaw.
