By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent


Panama City, Panama  (March 3rd, 2019)– International Boxing Hall of Fame retired World Boxing Association World Featherweight champion Eusebio Pedroza, who fought in 22 consecutive WBA world title bouts from 1978 to 1985, has died of pancreatic cancer in his native Panama City, Panama at age 62. From 1973 to 1992, Pedroza compiled a record of 41-6-1 with 25 knockouts. In 1982, WBC World Featherweight champion Salvador Sanchez died in a car accident in Mexico, and Pedroza became the recognized lineal world featherweight champion at that time. A Panamanian cousin, Rafael Pedroza, briefly held the WBA World Boxing Association World Super Flyweight title from 1981-1982.
