1971-09-02 Antonio Gomez w rsc 5 (15) Shozo Saijo, Municipal Gym, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Alfredo Garzo. Making his sixth defence, having been warned for going low in the second round Saijo (126) was dropped for ‘eight’ in the third by a left hook to the jaw. Back in action, on fighting back recklessly he was again badly hurt at the end of the session. After being fairly even in the fourth, despite damage to his left eye, Saijo tore into Gomez (125) at the start of the fifth before being put down for another ‘eight’ count by a right to the head. Following that, Saijo, dropped twice more from powerful combinations, was stopped from continuing at 2.07 of the round due to the automatic three-knockdowns (in a round) ruling.
