1984-05-27 Eusebio Pedroza w pts 15 Angel Mayor, Lakeside Hotel & Casino, Maracaibo, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Bernie Soto. Scorecards: 147-140, 149-138, 145-140. Again right on the limit, the champion ultimately had too much for the brave Mayor (125¼) but was made to fight all the way. Mayor, to his credit, would not be subdued, despite being cut over the left eye in the ninth round, and occasionally fired in useful left hooks and hard rights. Always in control though, Pedroza (126) fought a rough, tough fight, being warned for low blows and use of the elbow and kidney punching, but it did not change things and he continued to punch away with both hands to head and body to build up the points.
