1984-12-15 Richie Sandoval w rsc 8 (15) Cardenio Ulloa, Convention Centre, Miami, Florida, USA - WBA. Referee: Ernest Magana. Having been badly cut over the left eye in the first round, Sandoval (118) came right back to smash Ulloa (118) to the floor with an overarm right in the second, only to be floored himself by a cracking left hook in the third. From thereon, the champion picked it up to win the next three sessions, boxing well with lefts and rights finding their mark, before he was again shocked by Ulloa in the seventh, solid body punches slowing him up. However, with his eye bleeding badly and time of the element, Sandoval raced out in the eighth to land blow after blow on a by now defenceless challenger, who was rescued by the third man on the 2.31 mark.
