1973-11-18 Betulio Gonzalez w rsc 11 (15) Alberto Morales, New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Horacio Castilla. On top virtually throughout despite suffering a cut cheek in the second round and damaging his right hand, Gonzalez (110¾) gradually wore down Morales (111), his combination punching causing havoc. Come the 11th round, Morales was forced into a corner where the champion landed punch after punch before the referee rescued him at 1.40.
