  • Description

    Vincente Rondon loosed a vicious right hand, breaking the jaw and knocking out Italy's Piero Del Papa in the first round of their light heavyweight title fight in Caracas, Saturday (June 5) night
    It was the 27-year-old Rondon's first defence of the World Boxing Association's title which he won only two months ago in Caracas. Most other boxing organisations recognise Bob Foster of the United States as World Champion.

    Manoeuvring his opponent into a corner, the Venezuela-born Rondon, unleashed a powerful straight right hand catching Del Papa flush as his mouth was open gasping for air. Rondon, sensing victory, pursued with right and left. Referee Zachary Clayton counted Del Papa out at 1.55 of the first round.
