1970-03-03 Ismael Laguna w rtd 9 (15) Mando Ramos, Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Lee Grossman. Cut over the left eye as early as the first round, the champion tried hard to get inside the jab but was constantly beaten to the punch by Laguna (135), who continued to rack up points with his jab throughout. The eye damage was so bad that it had to be checked regularly during the intervals and when Ramos (134½) was cut over the right eye in the ninth and unable to see the punches coming his way his corner pulled him out at the end of the session.
