17 November Vic Toweel w pts 15 Luis Romero, Rand Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - WORLD. Referee: Willie Smith. Although starting aggressively, Romero (117½) was soon being forced back by the strong Toweel (116½), who relentlessly drove his challenger two-fistedly before him round after round. The Spanish southpaw, who was dropped heavily in the final session, was always looking to work the body and had some occasional successes, especially with the left, but in the main he had his hands full just trying to keep Toweel off and the judges’ unanimous decision was a formality.
