1981-10-03 Sergio Palma w pts 15 Vichit Muangroi-et, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Scorecards: 147-141, 148-138, 148-141. In a contest with no quarter given, it was the champion’s greater accuracy that ultimately gave him the advantage over the aggressive Muangroi-et (122). The opening rounds were even before Palma (122) moved ahead using a hard left jab to pave the way to victory. Never giving up, in the 14th and 15th sessions Muangroi-et went after Palma, who fought back with flurries of rights and lefts to the head that stunned his rival but failed to halt him.
