1971-04-03 [[Nicolino Locche]] w pts 15 [[Domingo Barrera]], Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Antonio Guzman. Scorecards: 147-145, 148-146, 146-148. Despite suffering two broken tendons in his left arm during the second round and a bad cut over his right eye in the eighth, the champion battled on bravely to take a split decision over the tough Barrera (138). There was no doubting that Locche (139) was confused by Barrera’s southpaw stance, but luckily for him the Spaniard began to tire from his exertions by the tenth and he was able to land some solid shots. Surprisingly, Barrera came out firing in the 11th in an effort to finish off Locche, but the latter escaped any serious hurt by dint of excellent footwork and in the 13th and 14th rounds it was the champion who landed the most explosive punches before both men struggled through the final session.
