While there were no knockdowns, it was action all the way with Muguruma (118) concentrating on the body and Vazquez (117½) landing good left-hand jabs and hooks and right crosses. Fighting like a mini [[Gene Fullmer]], the former middleweight number one, Muguruma, whose right eye was swollen shut by the sixth round, appeared to land more but the quality came from the champion.
