1975-08-23 Miguel Canto w rsc 11 (15) Jiro Takada, Carte Clara Stadium, Merida, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Juan Miranda. Extremely one-sided most of the way, Canto (111) pressured Takada (110) non-stop but could not put his rival down and it was not before time when the referee, knowing that the challenger could only win by a kayo, recognised that he was taking too much punishment and pulled him out at 1.09 of the 11th round.
