1984-05-26 Jaime Garza w co 3 (12) Felipe Orozco, Carlisle Stadium, Miami, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Despite giving away a four-inch reach advantage, Garza (121) went straight after the southpaw challenger, looking to hit the body and get off single head shots. The tactics paid off in the third round as Orozco (122), with his hands by his side, made the mistake of staying on the ropes too long and was caught by a terrific right uppercut which dropped him to be counted out by the third man after just 68 seconds of the session had elapsed.
