Stecca held the WBA super bantamweight title for three months in 1984. He defeated Leo Cruz to win the title by twelfth round knockout, then lost it to Victor Callejas by a knockout in round eight at Mario Morales coliseum, then known as Mets Pavilion, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.Stecca won five fights in a row, all by knockout, putting himself on title contention once again. In a rematch with Callejas, held in November 1985 in Rimini, Italy, however, he lost by a sixth round knockout. Ahead on the scorecards, Stecca received a punch that lifted him off the floor, sending him to the air before he landed on his knees. He got up, but his corner soon stopped the fight, and the punch made the highlights of many sports news shows.
