1971-06-05 Vicente Rondon w co 1 (15) Piero Del Papa, New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Zack Clayton. After tearing out of his corner at the opening bell, Del Papa (172) landed two heavy lefts before the champion replied with several short hooks to the head and then moved in with a steady flow of combination punches. With Rondon (174¾) showing no sign of slowing down Del Papa was finally dropped by a right uppercut to the jaw and counted out in a kneeling position at 2.35 of the session.
