1972-08-19 Carlos Monzon w rsc 5 (15) Tom Bogs, Idraets Park Stadium, Copenhagen, Denmark - WORLD. Referee: Harry Gibbs. Making his fifth defence, Monzon (159) proved far too powerful for Bogs (159½), who was under pressure from the third round onwards after landing several heavy blows on the champion that had no effect. Although his legs began to go in the third Bogs fought on bravely, but at the end of the fourth, having been nailed by a Monzon (159) right to the head the end was in sight. Dropped four times in the fifth, Bogs was overwhelmed by Monzon’s powerful rights and although he got up from the fourth knockdown the referee had seen enough and brought the fight to a close on the 2.30 mark.
