1976-10-05 Victor Galindez w pts 15 Kosie Smith, Rand Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 104-91, 105-95, 105-92. Down in the opening round, Smith (174) was given the mandatory ‘eight’ count after slipping rather than being knocked down and it was all downhill from thereon as he allowed the champion to control the fight. Smith had a go at Galindez (175) in the fourth, but in the main he was on the end of solid lefts and rights throughout. Cut over the left eye in the middle of the contest, Smith received another mandatory count after falling through the ropes in the tenth following a savage attack by Galindez. The result was a formality.
