5 December Baby Casanova w pts 10 Speedy Dado, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - CALIFORNIA. Referee: George Blake. Contested for the Californian version of the title, Casanova (118), a southpaw, took the referee’s decision when finishing strongly to win the last four rounds handily, poking away with the jab as he pleased.
