19 August Eder Jofre w rtd 7 (15) Ramon Arias, University Stadium, Caracas, Venezuela - NBA. Referee: Barney Ross. Although Arias (115½) made a reasonable start and was well in the fight until the sixth round, at that point Jofre (118) decided to cut loose, smashing the unfortunate challenger to the canvas with a barrage of lefts and rights to the body. Somehow Arias got up, but took more of the same in the next session before the contest came to an end after he had been subjected to blow after blow to the body and dumped with no chance of getting up. After throwing in the towel, Arias’ handlers jumped into the ring and the fight was over after two minutes of the session had expired.
