1976-05-15 Miguel Canto w pts 15 Susumu Hanagata, Carte Clara Stadium, Merida, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Scorecards: 149-139, 149-139, 150-137. Hanagata (112) was never really in it after the fourth round, having suffered a cut left eye, but was always dangerous whenever he attacked. However, using an accurate left jab and clever evasive tactics, Canto (111), who was cut over the right eye in the tenth, had all the answers and often dominated the fight from centre stage to retain his title.
