We don't have an estimated-risk statistic for the scenario you describe. However, what I can tell you is that HIV cannot permeate intact latex. No way. No how! Consequently, if you use a latex condom properly and it doesn't fail, your chances of acquiring HIV would be essentially nonexistent.
Stay safe. Stay well.
