Notes

  • A crowd of 8,000 attended the bout, which included South Korean president Park Chung Hee.
  • There were no knockdowns in the fight.
  • The springs holding the ring ropes taut suddenly broke with an explosion-like sound following the 13th round. With the ropes sagging, the bout was delayed for ten minutes while the problem was fixed.
  • Benvenuti suffered his first defeat after 120 wins as an amateur and 65 as a professional. [1]
  • The day after the fight, Benvenuti suggested that the ring may have been sabotaged. [2]
