1976-06-22 Carlos Palomino w rsc 12 (15) John H. Stracey, The Arena, Wembley, London, England - WBC. Referee: Sid Nathan. Although he made a reasonable start, by the second round Stracey (146) was being caught by solid rights while finding himself out of distance as the challenger constantly moved out of range. As the contest progressed Palomino (145¼) was also outjabbing Stracey. Despite coming back strongly in some sessions, the Boxing News reporter had Stracey five rounds down going into the 12th, having taken a real battering in the previous three. It was in this session that having decided that body blows were his route to the title, Palomino poured in vicious hooks to drop Stracey for two counts of ‘nine’ before the referee came to the champion’s rescue with 1.25 still on the clock.
