BELL SAN REMO, Italy (UPI)«Jino Benvenuti shrugged off a cnockdown in the seventh round to overcome Don Fullmer with persistent left jab Saturday and retain his world middleweight title with a unanimous 15-found decision. Except for the flash knock- lown in the seventh round when Kilmer, a brawler and grabber rom West Jordan, Utah, caught he champion with a right to the side of the head, Benvenuti was n almost complete command, le opened slight cuts by both of the 29-year-old challenger's eyes and had his face puffy from the straight left hand jabs. It was Benvenutl's first defense since he regained the itle from Emile Griffith in March and the first middleweight title bout ever held in Italy, The champion, dancing and punching to the rhythm of he cheers r 'Nlno, Nino" from the sellout crowd of 2,600 fans, scored his 78th victory In 80 bouts with hardly any effort, The. brawling Fullmer, who patterns' his roughhouse style jfter his brother, former two- ;ime middleweight champ Gene Fullmer, tried desperately to >ull the bout puf at times with lia futile lunging, but only succeeded in drawing frequent warnings and had one round deducted for butting. Although Fullmer was the No, 1 contender with record before the champion was a Viewmont G touchdown early in its the only third period when Leroy Kelly, the NFL's leading rusher, ran 45- yards around left end to the goal line. A 91-yard pass from Bill Nelsen to Paul Warfield setup Kelly's run. Oliver Cromwell, the English statesman, one* refused the title of king. DIAMONDS Karl J. Thalman TROTHIIS ' KARl J.

The Ryukyu archipelago ii made up of about 140 island •trtitching from southern Japan almost to Formosa, onstantly speared by the hampion. Fullmer'* nose and the fight ide of his face were red from ic jabs by the fifth round, but here did not appear to be any leeding until a cut was opened y his left eyebrow in the sixth ound. The Utah slugger seemed to ecome somewhat desperate rom the slight trickle of blood, nd he finally landed the most telling blow of the fight after a eemingly mild start in the eventh round to floor the hampion. At first, Nino didn't appear to be badly hurt as he lowly slid to the canvas, but when he tried to jump up his egs buckled under him and he went down again while the eferee counted. That was the only moment of lory for the American, however, as Behvenutl easily lasted he rest of the round despite constant fallings and once again took charge in the ollowlng rounds. By the 10th round, Fullmer's face was puffy iround the eyes and nose and he seemed very tired when he .lumped in his corner betyeen rounds, From then on it was all 80- year-old Benvenuti, who con- idently raised his arm* at a 4743-1 bout, hefty the 5-1 'avorite in this Italian gambling capital. In a previous bout between the two, Benvenuti won a disputed 12-round decision, but even the closeness of that previous fight didn't seem to attract fans at the $80 ticket price. The day before the bout, the promoter had to reduce the price of most of the tickets some to as low as $8, Benvenuti and the challenger both were cautious through the early rounds, but the Italian managed to hold an advantage with his long jabs against the onrushing Fullmer.

Pruitt, the 28-year-old challenger from La Habra, Calif., got off to a fast start but he tired badly in the last six rounds. Pruitt had to sweat off three pounds in a steam bath to get down to the 140-pound limit, and the Filipino winner had to takt off one pound. Adigue's victory is expected to provide a needed boost for boxing in the Philippines, and it didn't seem to make any difference to the fans that Argentine Niccolino Loeche had won the much more widely accepted version of the title on Thursday from Paul, Fuji. Adigue's crown is recognised only by the World Bojdng Council, which has Filipino Justiano Montano as its president, The World Boxing Council had stripped Fuji of his title earlier this year because he refused to defend against Adigue, and the bout Saturday was an elimination for the vacant crown. Adigue, 25, scored his 25th victory against four losses and three draws while Pruitt has i 27-7-2 record. There were no knockdowns in the bout, but both fighter* suffered swellings under their eyes and minor cuts, The pangolin it • toothlew, long-tailed mammal found ill Africa and Asia, Jt is a of scaly anteater.
