1976-07-18 Luis Estaba w co 3 (15) Franco Udella, The Polyhedron, Maracay, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Jay Edson. The champion, Estaba (108), took charge from the opening bell and dropped Udella (108) near the end of the second round. Although the Italian tried hard to fight back in the third, a jab followed by a savage right hook put him down for the full count on the 1.11 mark. Afterwards, Udella complained that he had been thumbed in the eye and should have been given time to recover.
