1976-11-21 Luis Estaba w rsc 10 (15) Valentin Martinez, New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. With Estaba (107½) well in control, having cut Martinez (108) over the left eye in the fifth and dropped him a round later, the referee called the fight off on the advice of the doctor in the tenth. Despite being outboxed and outpunched, the game Martinez never allowed the champion to relax.
