1985-05-19 Wilfredo Gomez w pts 15 Rocky Lockridge, Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. Scorecards: 145-144, 145-143, 144-144. Defending his title against a former two-weight champion, Lockridge (128½) started slowly before warming up in the middle rounds and attacking Gomez (129), especially with heavy rights to the head. At this stage, Gomez, with bruising and swellings around both eyes, stayed in the fight by moving adroitly and keeping in close when he had to, but when Lockridge began to tire in the 11th he made his move, coming on strongly to just about make up the leeway.
