1985-11-08 [[Victor Callejas]] w rtd 6 (15) [[Loris Stecca]], Sports Palace, Rimini, Italy - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Pressuring the champion right from the start despite a temporary blip, Stecca (121) seemed to be well on his way to regaining the title until running into trouble in the sixth round. With a minute remaining in that round, Callejas (121¼) took the fight to the Italian and floored him with a terrific left-right to the jaw. Although Stecca, badly cut on the left eye, got to his feet he was again smashed to the canvas before the bell came to his rescue and he was retired during the interval after suffering a suspected broken jaw. Callejas forfeited his WBA recognition in December 1986 for failing to defend against Louie Espinoza, having twice pulled out of defences against him.
