1986-02-15 Cesar Polanco w pts 15 Elly Pical, PI Coliseum, Jakarta, Indonesia - IBF. Referee: Denny Nelson. Scorecards: 146-143, 142-148, 147-138. In a big upset, Polanco (114) frustrated Pical (115) when moving adroitly around the ring to avoid the champion’s lethal left hook and tying him up whenever danger arose. In short, Polanco displayed good skills and technique as he boxed his way to victory, despite being rocked and cut on the right cheek in the last two sessions. The Indonesian Times reported that Polanco twice lost control of himself in the final two rounds.
