1975-08-30 Alfonso Zamora w rsc 4 (15) Thanomchit Sukhothai, Convention Centre, Anaheim, Ca, USA - WBA. Referee: Dick Young. Both men made a slow start before Zamora (117¾) decided to get to work during the second round, backing the challenger against the ropes while landing several combinations. After an accidental butt saw Zamora badly cut on the right eye in the third, fearing the worst he came out in the fourth looking for a quick finish. It did not take long in coming. Having put Sukhothai (117½) down with a left hook, when the Thai got to his feet he was hit with punches from all angles until the referee called it off on the 2.11 mark.
