1976-07-10 Alfonso Zamora w rsc 3 (15) Gilberto Illueca, Monumental Bullring, Juarez, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Making his fourth defence, Zamora (117½) quickly showed his intent after Illueca (118) had made a good start to win the first round, and by the second he was firing in heavy punches to the Panamanian’s body to slow him down. Round three spelt the finish, rights and lefts to the head dropping Illueca twice before he was rescued by the referee with one minute of the session remaining.
