1971-04-29 [[Carmelo Bossi]] drew 15 [[Jose Hernandez]], Sports Palace, Madrid, Spain - WBA/WBC. Referee: Bernard Mascot. Scorecards: 70-71, 70-70, 75-75. In a closely fought contest the deaf-mute Hernandez (154), showing excellent movement as well as a fighting heart, went so close to becoming the new champion when taking Bossi (154) right down to the wire. Both men had opened slowly, testing each other out, and the taller Hernandez soon realised he would profit by using his longer reach when staying on the outside, while Bossi did his best work at close quarters. Bossi, who complained of hurting his right arm in the fifth, was the more polished of the pair and threw more punches, but many of them missed the target and the result was a fair one.
