1969-10-04 Mando Ramos w rsc 6 (15) Yoshiaki Numata, Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Lee Grossman. With the challenger proving most elusive in the opening four rounds, as he darted in and out before Ramos (134½) could catch him, it looked to be a difficult night for the champion. Although the punches failed to hurt Ramos they scored points and confused him, but in the fifth he finally caught up with Numata (134) and following a cracking left to the body he dropped the latter twice with heavy rights to the head. Coming out for the sixth, although Numata seemed to have recovered Ramos eventually dropped him again with another right for ‘eight’ and when a further right decked him the referee had seen enough, halting the action with 40 seconds of the session left.
