Embassy Sportsdrome, Birmingham, West Midlands, United KingdomLDQ1015x3
referee: Georges Gondre
EBU (European) middleweight title
Duran suffered a cut over the left eye and Swift was disqualified for butting, much to the crowd's disappointment as Swift seemed on his way to victory. "Swift, who was far ahead on points at the finish, had been warned six times previously for infringements with his head." — Glasgow Herald, March 27, 1968; "Angry spectators hurled three chairs into the ring after the referee's verdict. One chair struck a newspaper man and knocked him half-unconscious under the ring. Police moved in and escorted Duran to his dressing room." — Associated Press.
