Default Re: Alfredo Evangilista 'The Safe Spaniard Challenger'

This may be hard to believe, but

Alfredo qualified for a shot at Muhammad Ali's title by losing an
8-Round decision to Lorenzo Zanon.

Evangilista was ranked #6 by the WBA at the time.
And the recorded account has Zanon winning 7 of the 8 rounds.

As later stated by Howard Cosell on ABC-TV.

'This has to be the worst Heavyweight Championship fight in history.'
