WBA welterweight champ Pipino Cuevas of Mexico drills a hard right into Puerto Rican challenger Angel Espada's right jaw in the 11th round of their title fight in San Juan, P.R., Nov. 19, 1977. At the end of the round the referee examined Espada and declared him unable to continue, fearing the jaw was broken. Espada was later taken to the hospital where a fracture was confirmed.
