1961-05-30 [[Johnny Caldwell]] w pts 15 [[Alphonse Halimi]], The Arena, Wembley, London, England - EBU. Referee: Ben Bril. Technically brilliant, Caldwell (116½) was up to everything Halimi (117½) could muster when outboxing and outfighting the champion to take a clear points decision from the referee. The last round was chaotic as Halimi went all out for a kayo, only to be met toe-to-toe by Caldwell and dropped for an ‘eight’ count before the bell rang. Halimi had been cut over the left eye as early as the second round.
