"Ken Buchanan, bleeding and battered around both eyes, pounded Ismael Laguna with solid left hands to the head and good body punches Monday night and retained his world lightweight championship with a unanimous 15 round decision at MSG. The classy scot never lost his cool although he bled from cuts below both eyes for a good deal of the fight and fought with his left eye badly swollen for the last 12 rounds and from a severe cut above his left eye in the last four rounds. Buchanan took control of the fight in the 4th round and almost ended the bout in the 14th when he drove the Panamanian around the ring with a two-fisted barrage that lasted for nearly a minute and almost sent Laguna through the ropes. Laguna managed to catch the top strand of the ropes and pull himself back into the ring where he escaped the charging Scot." -Associated Press
