1983-04-20 [[Roger Mayweather]] w rtd 8 (15) [[Jorge Alvarado]], Civic Auditorium, San Jose, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Making his first defence, Mayweather (130) started well enough before having to endure some rough moments prior to the fifth round as Alvarado (129¾) piled in with punches to head and body that had him in some distress. Unfortunately for the Panamanian once Mayweather’s head began to clear he was right back in the fight. Stunning his rival repeatedly with right-hand blows he drove Alvarado before him in the seventh and in the next round it was more of the same until the towel fluttered in at 2.28 to rescue the game challenger.
