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) surprisingly went on the defensive in round four as the aggressive Stecca (122) plodded forward. However, 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, before dropping Stecca with a left-right combination. Although Stecca got to his feet, after a volley of blows put him on the canvas again, battered and bleeding, the referee counted him out with just two seconds of the round remaining.
