1976-10-03 Miguel Canto w pts 15 Betulio Gonzalez, New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBC. Referee: Harry Gibbs. Scorecards: 147-143, 147-145, 145-147. The champion boxed brilliantly throughout to score a decisive victory, even if one of the judges did not see it that way. Making Gonzalez (111½) miss, wildly at times, Canto (112) used his boxing brain well and scored again and again as the aggressive challenger made a habit of walking on to the left jab.
