1967-05-16 Dick Tiger w pts 15 Jose Torres, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Harold Valan. Scorecards: 8-7, 8-7, 7-8. This, a return contest, saw the challenger starting well when scoring with solid blows to the head while Tiger (167) concentrated on the body, and in the third round both men let their punches go and both were staggered. The fight followed a similar pattern as their previous go, but this time round with Torres (167) being more effective it was much closer. Following the decision there was a riot as Torres’ partisan fans began throwing chairs and bottles towards the ring after their man failed to regain the title. Even Torres thought he had won, stating that he would seriously think about retiring.
