1979-02-10 Miguel Canto w pts 15 Jose Antonio Avelar, Carte Clara Stadium, Merida, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Scorecards: 148-141, 149-144, 146-141. Having great difficulty getting inside his challenger’s guard, Canto (111½), whose left eye was badly swollen at the end, found himself held tight whenever he got close. Eventually, Avelar (112) came out of his shell to box behind the jab to make it closer, but he lacked the ambition to claim the title.
