1972-12-03 Ernesto Marcel w rsc 6 (15) Enrique Garcia, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Servio Tulio Ley. The challenger was outboxed and outroughed throughout, but fought back bravely at all times despite being badly cut in the third round. Marcel (126) repeatedly rocked Garcia (124½) with solid blows and it was no surprise when the referee deemed that the Mexican, cut above and under both eyes, was unfit to continue in the sixth. Although Garcia praised Marcel for his all-round ability, he was also critical of the champion’s use of the head, which he felt had been allowed to be used as an extra weapon.
