1984-05-26 Victor Callejas w co 8 (15) Loris Stecca, Mets Pavilion, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Having made a good start Callejas (121½) went on the defensive in round four as the aggressive Stecca (122) plodded forward, but realising that to win the title he would have to do more he effectively picked up the pace in the eighth, hitting the latter at will. Towards the end of the session a left-right combination dropped Stecca and on getting to his feet a volley of blows put the Italian on the canvas again, battered and bleeding, where the referee counted him out with just two seconds of the round remaining.
