Lost His Title
He did NOT lose it, he resigned due to weight problems, before there were no intermediate divisions
On August 30, 1960, after losing by knockout in eight rounds against Eloy Sánchez, in the Ciudad Juárez bullring, he announced his retirement, but two years later he returned to the ring and despite having defeated by decision in six rounds Alberto Martínez, in Guadalajara, hung up his gloves for good
Becerra was immortal for his two great victories over Alphonse Halimi, as well as for the triumphs over José"Huitlacoche"Medel and he renounced the world title (at that time there was only one body that regulated the scepters of the world), because he no longer gave weight rooster.
