1962-01-18 Eder Jofre w rtd 10 (15) Johnny Caldwell, Ibirapuera Stadium, Sao Paulo, Brazil - WORLD. Referee: Willie Pep. By becoming the undisputed champion Jofre (117½) proved to be the best man in the division, and although Caldwell (118) boxed well the Brazilian’s power was just too much for him to handle. Put down in the fifth by a heavy body punch it was just a matter of time for Caldwell from then on. After he had got up in the tenth from another count, following a further burst of solid blows his manager called for the contest to be stopped, the finish being timed at 2.45.
