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 tough for him by constantly changing styles and dancing away before being caught heavily. Recognising there was a danger that he might punch himself out, in the last four sessions Valdez (159½) virtually ceased to attack. By that time, however, he had a wide margin of points in the bag. Although Robles did well from there on in he was never able to do much damage, the verdict in favour of the champion being unanimous.
