1971-10-10 Bruno Arcari w co 10 (15) Domingo Barrera, Sports Palace, Genoa, Italy - WBC. Referee: Teddy Waltham. Having gone close to winning the WBA title earlier in the year, Barrera (139) was given a crack at the WBC crown worn by Arcari (140) in what would be a battle of southpaws. In charge most of the way, especially with his infighting exposing his crude opponent, Arcari really got on top in the fifth round as he caught the onrushing Barrera with heavy rights and lefts. By the ninth, Barrera was on the verge of going down several times as he was forced to survive a battering and in the tenth, following a further bombardment of heavy blows, he finally sunk to the floor to be counted out.
