1978-02-12 : Arturo Pineda 137 lbs beat Ernesto Garfias 136½ lbs by KO in round 8 of 10

  • Location: Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico

"In a major card at the Plaza Calafia bull ring in Mexicali, Arturo 'Tury' Pineda, who hasn't won a fight in almost a year, stopped highly regarded state lightweight champion Ernesto Garfias in eight rounds. Garfias was being groomed for a battle against National champion Gerardo Ferrat in what would have been an attractive promotion featuring two Baja California natives. But after running off a series of impressive wins in the Tijuana area, Ernesto will now have to go back to the drawing board." -International Boxing, June 1978 issue

  • Also on this card was a 10 rounder between top contenders Vicente Saldivar Mijares and Alfredo Pituala.
