1972-02-05 Antonio Gomez w co 7 (15) Raul Martinez Mora, Cesar Giron Bullring, Maracay, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. With the large crowd demanding action after a relatively quiet start, the champion tore into Martinez Mora (124¼) in the third round, knocking him down for the mandatory ‘eight’ following a left uppercut and right cross. Although Gomez (125¼) tried to finish matters there and then, Martinez Mora came back well in avoiding the close exchanges where he was most at risk by staying on the outside. However, in the seventh Gomez finally caught up with Martinez Mora, and after pinning him on the ropes he smashed in a tremendous right to the body which brought about a count-out at 1.34 of the session.
