1969-11-28 Efren Torres w pts 15 Susumu Hanagata, The Bullring, Guadalajara, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Scorecards: 149-147, 149-147, 147-143. Hanagata (112) had outpointed Torres (112) in a ten-round non-title fight in June, but was unable to repeat the performance over 15, being rocked with vicious counter punches in both the early and latter rounds. Strong in the middle sessions, the challenger staggered Torres several times without making it count, the fight ending with both men throwing overarm punches in what had turned into a brawl.
