1967-01-29 Vicente Saldivar w rsc 7 (15) Mitsunori Seki, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WORLD. Referee: Ramon Berumen. A rematch by public demand saw the challenger starting fast before Saldivar (124¾) began to take over in the second round with solid southpaw punches to head and body. Although the next few sessions were relatively close Saldivar was hurting Seki (125) more and more, and in the seventh he dropped the latter for ‘seven’ with a flurry of blows to the head. Still groggy, Seki was allowed to continue and was battered from one side of the ring to the other, but when he turned his back on Saldivar the referee had seen enough and called it off on the 1.53 mark.
