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.'
