1972-05-19 Clemente Sanchez w co 3 (15) Kuniaki Shibata, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Hiroyuki Tezaki. Taking on the roll of aggressor from the opening bell, the challenger bored in to score with lefts and rights to the body before both fighters took a good look at each other in the second round. Having taken stock, Sanchez (125¼) upped the pace in the third and worked the body well before a left followed by an explosive right to the jaw dropped Shibata (125¼) for the full count, which was administered on the 2.26 mark. On 16 December at the Monumental Bullring, Monterrey, Mexico Sanchez, coming in three pounds over the weight, forfeited his title on the scales before his defence against Jose Legra began. As not to spoil the promotion, the fight went ahead and Legra (123¼lbs) was proclaimed champion after winning by a tenth-round stoppage.
