1979-01-29 Betulio Gonzalez drew 15 Shoji Oguma, The Gym, Hamamatsu, Japan - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 147-143, 146-149, 145-145. In what appeared to be a bad decision, Gonzalez (111¼) initially retreated and countered, while the southpaw challenger, Oguma (112), jabbed to the body and forced the fight before it became an out-and-out war. There were no knockdowns, but both men were badly cut over their left eyes.
