Disappointed with his performance despite his points-scoring left hand, Bredahl (117) made hard work of what should have been an easier defence, the 39-year-old Gamez (116¼) having gone back considerably since his halcyon days. Game, but never threatening, Gamez should have been despatched summarily, but the champion was strangely off colour and it was probably a good thing that he was not facing a more dangerous opponent.
