Unbeaten in 48 fights, the champion came into the contest with Gonzalez (174¼) as a hot favourite to retain his title and move level with the legendary Rocky Marciano on 49 straight. Unfortunately for Michalczewski (174¼) the Mexican had not read the script and after being cut over the left eye by a head butt in the second round and attacked with body shots and long jabs at every opportunity the fight gradually slipped away from him. Although Michalczewski came on strong in the latter stages and had Gonzalez desperately hanging on in the final session he was unable to find the punches needed to turn thing around.
