1976-11-19 Miguel Canto w pts 15 Orlando Javierta, Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Jordan. Scorecards: 149-137, 149-138, 149-138. Winning easily, once again Canto (112) dominated a title defence by the use of left-hand leading and hooks off the jab to contain the aggressive Javierta (112) who fought bravely but without a chance. Although Canto controlled the pace of the fight, he lacked the power to finish matters or even to put his man down.
