1981-02-08 Hilario Zapata w rsc 13 (15) Joey Olivo, New City Gym, Panama City, Panama - WBC. Referee: Lorenzo Fortunato. Unable to continue after 13 rounds of constant punishment and with battered features testament to that, Olivo (106½) was pulled out by his corner during the interval to save him from taking a further beating. In retaining his title for the fifth time, Zapata (107¾) was always in charge, scoring with quick rights and lefts before moving out of range.
