Despite Chang (107½) being too ring wise and ferocious for Montiel (107¾), there were no knockdowns with the game challenger continuously stemming the tide, but there were several close calls. For the first five rounds, Montiel slugged it out with the ‘Korean Hawk’ but from then on he fought mainly on the retreat, while looking for the counters. At the final bell, Montiel’s right eye was almost swollen shut.
