1984-04-07 [[Richie Sandoval]] w rsc 15 (15) [[Jeff Chandler]], Sands Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Dominating from the start, Sandoval (118) shook the champion up early, switching his punches from head to body, and kept him constantly backed up to take control when winning round after round. Coming into the final third of the contest, Sandoval looked a sure bet to become the new champion and, despite a puffed up left eye, he cut loose to floor Chandler (118) with a left hook in the 11th. After almost having Chandler over again in the 14th and backing him into a corner in the 15th, the referee leapt in to call a halt to proceedings at 1.20.
