1962-05-04 Eder Jofre w rsc 10 (15) Herman Marques, Cow Palace, San Francisco, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Fred Apostoli. Despite putting up a great fight and being ahead on points coming into the tenth round, with Jofre (117¾) having had no real answer to his accurate jabs, Marques (118) decided to go for a quick win and came unstuck. In the tenth, Marques tried to follow up his early successes but was exposed when a left-right had him down for eight. On rising, the challenger was immediately floored again and with 45 seconds of the session remaining the referee called it off.
