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) found himself held tight whenever he did get close, before Avelar (112) eventually came out of his shell to box behind the jab to make it closer. The slow moving Canto’s left eye was badly swollen at the end.
