1977-09-13 Carlos Palomino w pts 15 Everaldo Costa Azevedo, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Dick Young. Scorecards: 147-140, 145-140, 145-140. Showing no inclination to trade with the champion, Azevedo (145½) boxed on the back foot and continually moved away from punches while clinching at every opportunity when he was closed down. With Palomino (147) unable to catch up with Azevedo until the latter stages, when the Brazilian finally ran out of gas due to his exertions, it was a poor fight to watch. Brought down to his opponent’s level, Palomino won the fight on conditioning and his work over the last few rounds, but he disappointed with his inability to corner Azevedo.
