1965-05-15 [[Carlos Hernandez]] w rtd 4 (15) [[Mario Rossito]], Alejandro Borges Stadium, Maracaibo, Venezuela - WBA/WBC. Defending his newly won title, Hernandez (134¼) quickly showed his power with two-handed body attacks and cracking left uppercuts making inroads into the challenger’s defences as early as the opening session. Noted for his durability, it was soon clear to see that Rossito (137½) was going to be unable to cope with the champion’s speed as he continued to take a battering and at the end of the third he was badly marked up with his left eye closed and left cheek badly bruised. It came as no surprise when Rossito was retired prior to the fifth getting underway, having taken further severe punishment in the fourth and being on the verge of suffering a knockout.
