Default Miguel De Oliveira "Maestro de Socos"

Miguel De Oliveira (Sao Paulo, Brazil)

"The Maestro de Socos"

A 5' 10" brilliant boxer-puncher, who became the WBC Light-Middleweight Champion in May 1975.

A short-term Champion, that very few saw fight. Fast-hands and a crisp puncher, who was razor-sharp in punching accuracy.

Turned professional in June 1968 (at age 20 1/2)

Ran off '30' straight wins 30-0-0 (20 KO's), and earned the #1 WBC Light-Middleweight ranking by the end of 1972.

Tuesday Night - January 9, 1973 - Fought World Light-Middleweight Champion * Koichi Wajima in Tokyo, Japan -
at the Metropolitan Gym in front of 11,000 Japanese Boxing fans.

Boxed circles around the Champion, and clearly won the fight, but the '3' Japanese scoring officials - scored the
bout a 15-Round Draw.

The scoring was considered 'corrupt and inept', as the 'independent boxing press' had scored Miguel De Oliveira the
winner, by a score of 8-4-3 in rounds.

Scorecards
* Referee, Horoyuki Tezaki...71-71 (4-4-7 in Rounds)...Even
* Judge, Takeo Ugo............73-71 (4-2-9 in Rounds)...Koichi Wajima
* Judge, Ken Morita............71-71 (4-4-7 in Rounds)...Even

Fight Purse.......... Koichi Wajima........ $52,000 (U.S. Dollars)
Fight Purse.......... Miguel De Oliveira... $23,000 (U.S. Dollars)

Note: The 'Boys From Brazil' had offered Koichi Wajima $85,000 (plus expenses) to come to Sao Paulo, Brazil
to fight Miguel De Oliveira, but he refused to defend his Championship outside of Japan.

Note: Miguel De Oliveira also received an additional $4000 in expenses, plus the Ancillary Television rights to
South America (Approximately $15,000).

When the Brazilian Military called Miguel De Oliveira for duty, to help and
protect the innocent civilians, he volunteered his services to 'his' country.

Miguel also performed 'boxing exhibitions', and donated all the proceed's
to the injured military personnel.

Miguel De Oliveira a 'true' Hero.

Wow I didnīt know that.......he was known , very nice guy, humble, a great person......he was a good trainer later on (still is), trained guys like Adilson Rodrigues, the brazilian HW, well ranked in the 80s...
Apparently his win against Jose Duran was clear and his performance was pretty good.....
IMO he beat Wajima twice.....close fights, but I think Miguel landed the harder shots pretty clearly and in the rematch he also had a higher workrate during the whole bout.....

Vic,

What happened to Miguel De Oliveira after the Elisha Obed (L TKO 11) 'disaster' in
Paris, France in November 1975.

Miguel was only 28, and then 'fell-off-the-radar'.

Yeah, I think some bad management of his career helped with this sudden decline..

Vic,

I guess he moved up to 160 lbs. (Middleweight) and flopped.

I read an article about his bout with Elisha Obed in November 1975.

The 'Bahamian Bomber" gave him a sound thrashing in Paris, enroute to a TKO 11.

Elisha gave him a 'bad beating', that Miguel may not have recovered from.

Miguel was supposed to get a rematch with Elisha Obed, but De Oliveira lost a 'one-sided'
12-Round Decision to veteran Juarez De Lima in February 1976.

That knocked him out of the 'rematch', which was supposed to be in April 1976.
