1976-10-05 Victor Galindez w pts 15 Kosie Smith, Rand Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 104-91, 105-95, 105-92. On the floor in the opening round, when Smith (174) was given the mandatory ‘eight’ count after slipping rather than being knocked down it was all downhill thereafter as he allowed the champion to control the fight. Smith had a go at Galindez (175) in the fourth, but in the main he was on the end of solid lefts and rights throughout. Cut over the left eye in the middle of the contest, Smith received another mandatory count after falling through the ropes in the tenth following a savage attack by Galindez. The result was a formality.
