1972-10-28 Antonio Cervantes w co 10 (15) Alfonso Frazer, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. In what was viewed a big upset, Cervantes (139), also known as Kid Pambele, took all that the champion could muster and came back with heavy punches of his own to knock the ‘Peppermint’ out. The contest had got away to a slowish start as both men felt each other out, but by the middle rounds Frazer (139½) was just about ahead on the cards with his aggressive work from head to body paying dividends. However, Cervantes was still very much in the contest as Frazer continued to miss with a fair percentage of heavy shots and following a heavy exchange of blows in the tenth, Frazer sank to the floor where he was counted out at 1.15 of the session.
