1974-12-14 [[Jose Napoles]] w co 3 (15) [[Horacio Saldano]], Sports Palace, Mexico City, Mexico - WORLD. Referee: Ramon Berumen. Despite having difficulties in making 147lbs Napoles (146½) came out fast and was soon penetrating the challenger’s defences with left jabs and sparkling combinations. Even then Saldano (143) was catching Napoles with hurtful body blows and it looked like being a quick and explosive fight. The third round saw Napoles smashing in a left uppercut that knocked Saldano’s gumshield out and left him weak and open before a cracking left-right combination sent him down to be counted out on the 1.55 mark.
