1975-12-12 Miguel Canto w pts 15 Ignacio Espinal, Carte Clara Stadium, Merida, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Jay Edson. Scorecards: 149-143, 149-142, 149-143. Counter-punching to perfection, Canto (112) outboxed his stocky opponent by using the left jab and move principle. Only when he mixed it with Espinal (112) did the champion look at risk, taking some hard shots, but he quickly reverted to defensive tactics to negate the challenger’s aggression.
