1963-09-18 Hiroyuki Ebihara w co 1 (15) Pone Kingpetch, The Gym, Tokyo, Japan - WORLD. Referee: Sang Hiranyalekha. On following in the footsteps of Yoshio Shirai and Fighting Harada, the fast moving, hard punching Ebihara (112) won the championship inside two minutes and seven seconds, a southpaw left to the jaw doing the damage. Moments earlier, Kingpetch (110¾) had taken a mandatory ‘eight’ count and at the finish had landed just two punches.

Coming into the ring, Ebihara had 36 wins from 38 contests on his record and had beaten Tsuyoshi Nakamura (twice), Katsutoshi Aoki, Johnny Jamito, Ray Perez and Chartchai Chionoi.
