1983-10-22 Eusebio Pedroza w pts 15 Jose Caba, Sports Palace, St Vincent, Italy - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 146-143, 148-145, 148-144. Overcoming weight problems, and despite being cut over the left eye in round two, Pedroza (126) showed no lack of stamina while controlling most of the contest with his left jab, an important weapon for him. Some sessions were closely fought, but Pedroza always had the edge even though Caba (125¾), badly cut over the left eye in the 11th, had success inside with hooks to the body and rights over the top. The last four rounds saw Caba belted along the ropes as he tried to pick up the pace, and although he came back to give Pedroza plenty of trouble the champion answered with quick, accurate punches from both hands.
