1966-08-07 Vicente Saldivar w pts 15 Mitsunori Seki, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WORLD. Referee: Ramon Berumen. Scorecards: 146-138, 145-141, 145-143. In a battle of southpaws, Saldivar (124½), dropped in the fourth by a right to the jaw and fighting from the sixth with a closed left eye, was taken to his limits by a challenger who looked to make every punch count. Having somehow got through the fourth and an equally tough fifth session, Saldivar came back to drop Seki (124) for the mandatory ‘eight’ in the seventh and built on that success to go on to a merited victory. The Ring magazine reported that in every one of the 15 rounds one fighter or the other were staggered.
