1985-02-02 [[Eusebio Pedroza]] w pts 15 [[Jorge Lujan]], New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Scorecards: 149-148, 147-141, 147-140. Making a great start, Lujan (126) took the fight to Pedroza (126) for the opening five rounds, matching his rival punch for punch, before the champion pulled ahead during the middle sessions when digging in solid body shots and dealing out an assortment of blows to the head. Stubbornly refusing to fold, Lujan occasionally hit back with solid blows of his own before being eventually dropped by short right to the jaw in the 14th. Despite that, Lujan came back strongly to win the 15th as he backed Pedroza up and drove in some good punches before the bell denoted the end of the contest.
