1977-12-02 Carlos Zarate w rsc 5 (15) Juan Francisco Rodriguez, Sports Palace, Madrid, Spain - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. The inexperienced Rodriguez (117) actually did quite well for the opening three rounds before Zarate (117¾) cut loose in the fourth, softening his challenger up with vicious body shots. At the start of the fifth it was clear that Zarate was not going to hang around much longer. That was borne out when the game Spaniard was rescued by the referee at 1.40 of the session, having been twice floored.
