1977-07-17 Luis Estaba w pts 15 Ricardo Estupinan, Luis Ramos Gym, Puerto Le Cruz, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Jay Edson. Despite not being at his best, Estaba (107¼) was still far too good for his challenger and scored knockdowns in the ninth and 15th rounds before running out a convincing winner on all three cards. Estupinan (108), who came in as a late substitute for the injured Juan Alvarez, was out of his depth with only nine wins from 12 contests and although he did his best he had no right being in the same ring as the ‘Fighting Grandfather’.
