1960-08-17 Flash Elorde w co 1 (15) Harold Gomes, Cow Palace, San Francisco, California, USA - NBA. Referee: Matt Zidich. Making his first defence, Elorde (130) was quickly into action when putting Gomes (130) down for ‘seven’ after a left to the jaw had found its mark. On getting to his feet Gomes was immediately under siege, and following a heavy right-left combination a smashing left dropped him for the full count after just 1.20 of the opening round had elapsed.
