1973-09-08 : Antonio Cervantes 139 lbs beat Carlos Maria Gimenez 139¾ lbs by TKO at 1:45 in round 5 of 15

  • Location: Coliseo El Campin, Bogota, Colombia
  • Referee: Isaac Herrera

"Antonio Cervantes of Columbia looked somewhat bewildered by Carlos Gimenez' style in the first two rounds, especially in the 2nd when Gimenez connected his best blows. Cervantes knocked him down twice in the 3rd round with hard rights to the chin. Each time the Argentinean was able to bounce back. The scheduled 15 rounder ended at 1:45 of the 5th when Cervantes sent Gimenez to the canvas for the third time in the fight with a solid right to the face. The referee stopped the bout when Gimenez got back to his feet but obviously was unable to continue fighting." -Associated Press
