1977-02-12 Esteban DeJesus w rsc 6 (15) Buzzsaw Yamabe, Loubriel Stadium, Bayamon, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Having been forced to lose weight before the fight, the southpaw challenger was soon in trouble against the fast hands of DeJesus (135) and before the opening round was over he had been dropped for ‘six’ from a left-right to the head. Although coming back bravely in in the next three sessions, Yamabe (135) was again in trouble in the fifth as DeJesus stepped up the pace. Scoring repeatedly with solid rights to head and body in the sixth, DeJesus dropped Yamabe with a right to the jaw and when the latter got up at ‘eight’ he was ambushed by a barrage of punches and put down again. Despite Yamabe beating the count, the referee had seen enough and the fight was called off at 2.06 of the session.
