1977-10-30 Luis Estaba w pts 15 Netrnoi Sorvorasingh, New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Anselmo Escobedo. Scorecards: 149-141, 149-143, 149-138. There was little action before the fight came to life in the eighth round as Sorvorasingh (107½) rained in punches on the 40-year-old champion, who got himself out of trouble due to clever boxing. The final two sessions saw the Thai throw everything at Estaba (108), who stood his ground to earn a decision, which caused concern by its wideness. It was later understood that Estaba had fractured his right hand early on.
