1975-12-12 [[Alfredo Escalera]] w rsc 9 (12) [[Svein Erik Paulsen]], The Forum, Oslo, Norway - WBC. Referee: Harry Gibbs. Relying on left jabs and a tight defence, the unbeaten Paulsen (129) was level going into the ninth round, but during the eighth session it was ominous that the champion was beginning to get on top as his heavier punches began to take effect. Into the ninth, as expected, Escalera (128) finally opened up and Paulsen was rocked by solid punches from both hands before taking a standing count of ‘eight’. The end was now in sight and following two more heavy rights from Escalera, and with Paulsen helpless on the ropes, the referee called it off with about a minute of the round remaining.
