1968-07-24 : Howard Winstone 125¼ lbs lost to Jose Legra 125½ lbs by TKO at 2:02 in round 5 of 15

  • Location: Coney Beach Arena, Porthcawl, Wales, United Kingdom
  • Referee: Harry Gibbs

"Jose Legra of Spain won the world featherweight championship Wednesday night when he stopped defending champion Howard Winstone of Wales in the 5th round of their scheduled 15 round bout. Referee Harry Gibbs stopped the bout at 2:02 of the 5th round with Winstone's left eye completely closed and with cuts above and below it. Winstone had been dumped on the canvas twice in the 1st round with looping right handers, and his eye was closed within two minutes when the Spaniard connected with another right. After the 1st round, it was obvious Winstone could not go the full 15 rounds as Legra bombed him at will." -United Press International
