1984-09-22 Richie Sandoval w pts 15 Edgar Roman, Circus Tent, Monte Carlo, Monaco - WBA. Referee: Angelo Priami. Scorecards: 150-138, 149-139, 149-137. Taking command early on, Sandoval (118) floored Roman (117½) in the third round with a hard right to the head. He then proceeded to pile up the points, jabbing to head and body, while the challenger fought mostly on the defensive where his counters rarely bothered him. That was the pattern of the fight, and although Sandoval, who tried to finish his man off summarily on several occasions without success, was cut over the left eye in the fourth it rarely bothered him, the decision being a formality.
