Professional careerEdit

Accavallo fought mainly in Argentina. On 1 March 1966, he won the vacant WBA & WBC world flyweight championship by outpointing Katsuyoshi Takayama on 15-round split decision in Tokyo, Japan.[1][2][3][4][5] Accavallo had been the second contender for the world flyweight title held by Salvatore Burruni. The WBA & WBC had mandated that Burruni fight Hiroyuki Ebihara (the first contender). But Burruni chose to defend the title against Rocky Gattellari. The WBA & WBC stripped the champion of his crown and sanctioned the Accavallo - Katsuyoshi Takayama (the third contender) match for the title. Accavallo retired as the reigning WBA & WBC champion after escaping with a controversial 15 round majority decision victory over former world flyweight champion Hiroyuki Ebihara.[6]
