1960-09-22 Pone Kingpetch w rsc 8 (15) Pascual Perez, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Mushy Callahan. Despite starting well, Perez (110½), cut under the left eye, was practically out on his feet and not fighting back when the fight was stopped at 2.32 of round eight. It was not so much that Kingpetch (111½) was hitting him at will, but the fact that the former champion had come to the end of his tether. Having been given time out to rest after beating Perez for the second time, Kingpetch was allowed a warm-up non-title bout in March 1961 before defending against the world’s number-five contender, Mitsunori Seki.
