Sean was very young, 17 years old, just coming up from Bantamweight to fight L. Red Lopez who was a solid featherweight.

Lopez was just coming off a win over Ruben Olivares.......and he had dueled with some of the great LA fighters of the mid-70's.

Nine months after beating Sean, Lopez was winning the WBC featherweight title.....and starting a 8 successful title defense run.

Sean went on to a controversial loss to Jim Watt on cuts for the WBC Lightweight title, and capturing the WBA Lightweight title over Hilmer Kenty.
