1975-08-16 [[Rodrigo Valdez]] w pts 15 [[Rudy Robles]], Indian Bullring, Cartagena, Colombia - WBC. Referee: Victor Amor. In what was a difficult fight for the champion, the 22-year-old Robles (159½) made life difficult for him by constantly changing styles and dancing away before being caught heavily. There was a danger that Valdez (159½) might punch himself out with the amount of chasing he was forced to do and in the last four sessions he virtually ceased to attack. By that time, however, he had a wide margin of points in the bag and although Robles did well from there on in he was never able to do much damage and the verdict in favour of the champion was unanimous.
