He has also regularly been cited as one of the finest left-handed fighters of all time. A 5'3" southpaw, Vicente Saldivar was a dynamic fighter in the ring. He could box or brawl, and often softened opponents with a brutal body attack. Among his greatest assets was his stamina; Saldivar scored seven knockouts after the 7th round. Saldivar, born in Mexico City, Mexico, turned pro in 1961 and won the Mexican featherweight title with a 2nd-round knockout of Juan Ramírez on February 8, 1964. His first major victory came on June 1 of that same year when he defeated future lightweight champion Ismael Laguna. But his biggest moment was still to come. On September 26, 1964, Saldivar won the world's Featherweight title by upsetting fellow Mexican fighter Sugar Ramos with a 11th-round knockout in an extremely bloody battle. His first reign as champion would last three years, in which Saldivar made eight successful title defenses. The reign was highlighted by his trilogy with Howard Winstone. He also defended his title against Mitsunori Seki and future champion Raul Rojas. Saldivar won each of the three Winstone fights, twice earning 15-round decisions and then stopping him in the 12th round of their final meeting in 1967. Saldivar announced his retirement after that contest. Three months later, Winstone won recognition as WBC featherweight champion, claiming the belt left vacant by Saldivar, by defeating Mitsunori Seki with a 9th-round knockout. After 21 months of inactivity, Saldivar returned to the ring on July 18, 1969 and won a 10-round unanimous decision over another former as well as future Featherweight champion, José Legra. Then on May 9, 1970, he regained the featherweight title with a 15-round unanimous decision over Johnny Famechon. This reign, however, was short-lived. Saldivar lost the crown 7 months later in his first defense against Kuniaki Shibata. The Mexican great would fight once more before retiring again in 1971, however, the lure of the ring was too strong. He returned at the age of 30 for another title attempt on October 21, 1973. His opponent was fellow Hall of Famer and former bantamweight champion, Éder Jofre. Jofre, who was 37, had won the Featherweight crown after coming out of his own retirement. Jofre won the contest with a 4th-round knockout in Brazil. After the fight, Saldivar retired for good. Saldivar boasted an abnormally slow heart rate, which he claimed was the secret of the phenomenal pace that he was able to maintain in the ring. He died on July 18, 1985, aged only 42.
