1982-02-24 Carlos De Leon w rsc 7 (15) Marvin Camel, Playboy Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Juan Jose Guerra. Getting solid blows off from the start, De Leon (182¾) was soon in charge and in the third round Camel (183½) was hurt by a cracking left hook, finishing the session with a bad cut over the right eye. Although Camel kept going with the southpaw jab he was being outpunched and was unable to stop the champion’s right hand regularly smashing into his features, which caused even more blood to flow. At the end of the seventh, with Camel’s face badly bloodied and swollen, it was no surprise when the doctor advised the referee to stop the fight.
