1966-02-12 Vicente Saldivar w co 2 (15) Floyd Robertson, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WORLD. Referee: Ramon Berumen. Reckoning to give Saldivar (123¾) his toughest defence and regarded in his homeland as the champion, Robertson (124¼) started slowly as did the champion, the first round passing without a hint of what was in the offing. Coming out of his corner for the second session with a rush Saldivar soon got down to work, and having paved the way a heavy left-right dropped Robertson for ‘eight’. Obviously hurt, Robertson became a target for more slashing punches before a solid right put him down for the count at 2.29 of the session.
