1961-12-16 Flash Elorde w rsc 1 (15) Sergio Caprari, Rizal Coliseum, Manila, Philippines - NBA. Referee: Felipe Hernandez. The fight had barely started when Caprari (129½), after missing with a left, was dropped for ‘three’ by a short right to the jaw. Back on his feet, the challenger tried to hang on but after combination punches to the body saw his guard drop Elorde (130) cracked in another left to the head which put him down again, this time for ‘eight’. Although Caprari somehow got to his feet a right hook floored him soon after, whereupon the referee called it off with 38 seconds of the first round still remaining.
