1978-02-11 [[Carlos Palomino]] w co 7 (15) [[Ryu Sorimachi]], Hilton Sports Pavilion, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Ferd Hernandez. Making a slow start, Palomino (147) didn’t really warm up until the fourth round when the challenger began to fire in punches, but the exchanges were wild and mainly ineffectual. It was in the sixth that Palomino began to get his punches off, sending in punishing blows to the body, and Sorimachi (147) barely made it to his corner at the end of the session. Realising that he had his man where he wanted, Palomino stormed into Sorimachi in the seventh and having softened him up with a vicious body attack, he sent the Oriental down to be counted out with a smashing left hook to the jaw. The finish was timed at 2.03.
