1972-08-19 [[Ernesto Marcel]] w pts l5 [[Antonio Gomez]], Cesar Giron Bullring, Maracay, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Scorecards: 148-142, 148-142, 146-146. Seemingly at a loss as to how to deal with Marcel (126), the listless champion was never at ease and allowed the Panamanian to dictate the fight. Although Marcel attacked throughout and often swarmed all over Gomez (125), throwing plenty of punches, he lacked the power required to finish early and had to settle for a majority points win after one of the judges could not part the two men.
