1975-08-30 Alfonso Zamora w rsc 4 (15) Thanomchit Sukhothai, Convention Centre, Anaheim, Ca, USA - WBA. Referee: Dick Young. Both men made a slow start before Zamora (117¾) decided to get to work during the second round, backing the challenger against the ropes and getting off several combinations. In the third, an accidental butt saw the champion badly cut on the right eye and fearing the worst he came out in the fourth looking for a quick finish. A left hook put Sukhothai (117½) down and, on getting to his feet, the Thai was hit with punches from all angles until the referee called it off on the 2.11 mark.
