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.
