  • Location: Palacio de los Deportes, Madrid, Comunidad de Madrid, Spain
  • Referee: Piero Brambilla 69-72

"Spain's Miguel Velasquez outpointed a bitterly disappointed Ken Buchanan of Britain over 15 rounds here last night to win the vacant European lightweight title. At the final bell excited Veleasquez supporters invaded the ring to hoist the Spaniard onto their shoulders. Seconds later the Italian referee's verdict proved their optimism right as Buchanan leaned dejectedly against the ropes in his corner. But the decision must have been desperately close and the referee, Signor Piero Brambilla, refused to say how he had marked the final score on his card." -Reuters
