1973-08-04 Betulio Gonzalez w pts 15 Miguel Canto, Luis Aparicio Stadium, Caracas, Venezuela - WBC. Scorecards: 147-143, 147-145, 147-147. In a slow-paced battle of wits for the WBC title vacated by Venice Borkorsor, it was the left hand of Gonzalez (112) up against the body-working tactics employed by Canto (111), who picked up eye damage in the second round. There were some good punches landed by both men, but towards the end Gonzalez appeared to have it wrapped up.
