1977-11-20 Victor Galindez w pts 15 Eddie Gregory (Mustafa Muhammad), Sports Palace, Turin, Italy - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Scorecards: 147-145, 147-146, 148-147. Winning most of the early rounds on sheer aggression, dropping Gregory (174) in the fifth with a cracking left hook to the jaw, the champion looked to be on his way to a comfortable win. It was in the eighth that Gregory got to grips with Galindez (173½), cutting him under the right eye and making full use of his left jab and solid right-hand hitting. Gregory was still not throwing enough punches, but after being warned for a low blow in the 13th he came on like a train, hammering Galindez with solid rights to the head and fighting hard to the final bell. It had been a close call for Galindez, who just about held on.
