1984-05-19 Francisco Quiroz w co 9 (15) Lupe Madera, Lakeside Hotel Casino, Maracaibo, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Larry Hazzard. Making a good start, the favoured Madera (108) sent Quiroz (107½) to the canvas in the third round and dominated the action up to the seventh, his greater speed and footwork allied to a fine left hand putting him well in control. Surprisingly, the challenger got back into the contest with good punching power, and in the ninth knocked Madera out with a solid right, the finish being timed at 2.17 of the session.
