1973-09-08 Ernesto Marcel w co 9 (15) Spider Nemoto, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBA. Referee: Roberto Lopez. Always on top against the game 22-year-old challenger, Marcel (126), utilising his seven-inch height advantage, punished his rival to both head and body throughout, his stiff left hand jabs having him badly cut about the mouth, nose and eyes. The end was always imminent and could have come much earlier had Marcel not damaged his left, but in the ninth Nemoto (125¾) finally crumbled, hitting the floor twice from heavy right hands, the second knockdown ending with him being counted out five seconds into the tenth round.
