1965-09-07 [[Vicente Saldivar]] w pts 15 [[Howard Winstone]], Exhibition Centre, Earls Court, London, England - WORLD. Referee: Bill Williams. Although a brilliant exponent of the left hand and despite having a useful reach advantage, Winstone (125) often elected to punch it out with the hard-hitting southpaw champion rather than try to outbox him. Cut over both eyes, the right in the fifth and the left in the 13th, Winstone continued to try and beat Saldivar (125¾) at his own game, but by the 13th he was suffering the effects of the body attacks and was tiring fast. The last three rounds were hard for Winstone as Saldivar realised that the Welshman had nothing left. Despite unleashing his full arsenal, Saldivar was unable to floor the gallant challenger and had to rely on the referee’s decision.
