Description : Here we have an original super rare official onsite boxing fight poster for the WBC world welterweight championship title bout. Wembley Empire Pool, Wembley, London, England, 14th June 1977.

Reigning & defending WBC world welterweight champion Carlos Palomino was making his 2nd visit to these shores after defeating Britain's John H Stracey to lift the crown the previous year. He was facing the No2 contender in the rough, tough Englishman Dave 'Boy' Green.

Palomino was heavily favoured to win with the bookies, but Green gave the champion all he could handle & some ringside scribes had Green just ahead before the dramatic conclusion at 2.05 of the 11th round when Palomino unleashed a tremendous left hook to the chin that put Green down as though he had been hit by a bolt of lightning leaving him out for the 10 count. A doctor ran into the ring to tend to him and two or three minutes passed before he could be helped to his feet."
