1984-12-08 Santos Laciar w pts 15 Hilario Zapata, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Scorecards: 147-145, 144-141, 148-145. Despite giving a poor performance, although Laciar (111¾) chased the back-pedalling Zapata (111¾) throughout he was unable to produce a finishing blow. The challenger, who used speed and agility to advantage, lacked the punching power to keep Laciar at bay, the result being predictable long before the final bell.
