1976-03-28 Victor Galindez w rtd 3 (15) Harald Skog, Ekeberg Hall, Oslo, Norway - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Clearly a mismatch with Skog (173½) flicking out left jabs and not landing anything of note, once the champion opened up in the second round the writing was on the wall for the Norwegian. Much taller than Galindez (173½), Skog failed to make use of this advantage and after being hurt at the end of the first he was dropped by a right uppercut at the end of the second. Storming out for the third, Galindez forced a mandatory ‘eight’ count on Skog when the latter was hanging halfway out of the ring and after smashing in lefts and rights to drop challenger the referee stopped what had become an uneven contest on the 1.45 mark.
