1970 Carlos Monzon v Nino Benvenuti on-site program
A rare on-site program from the 1970 Ring Magazine Fight of the Year - Carlos Monzon v Nino Benvenuti at the Palazzetto dello Sport, Rome on November 7th. Benvenuti was attempting to defend his WBA & WBC Middleweight titles for the fifth time but was overcome by Monzon, who ended the fight with a heavy right hand in the twelfth round. Monzon was a huge underdog preceding the fight, with only the most knowledgeable boxing scribes having heard of him. Excellent condition with a light center fold. Clean pages throughout, with the scorecard unused.
