1956-01-12 Pascual Perez w pts 15 Leo Espinosa, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WORLD. Perez (107¾), who retained his title on receiving the unanimous decision, was always in charge although it was never easy as Espinosa (111½) proved himself a tough handful. Despite taking a count of ‘four’ in the eighth round and carrying a badly cut cheekbone, the Filipino continually fought back and also revealed a clever defence in doing so. Yet another fight where Perez appeared to take a risk came against a fellow Argentinian came in a ten-round points win over the 111¾lbs Marcelo Quiroga in Mendoza on 31 March.
