1980-02-09 : Lupe Pintor 116 lbs beat Alberto Sandoval 117½ lbs by TKO at 1:19 in round 12 of 15

Pintor had controlled the bout most of the way, and stopped Sandoval with a flurry of punches that had him staggering when referee Carlos Padilla decided the challenger could take no more. Pintor scored heavily with hooks throughout the fight. Sandoval, the WBC's No. 10 contender, had just one good round, the first, when he successfully danced and jabbed against the slower, more cautious champion. Pinto collected $100,000, and Sandoval $25,000.
