17 May Fighting Harada w pts 15 Eder Jofre, Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WORLD. Referee: Barney Ross. Scorecards: 71-69, 72-70, 69-72. Attacking non-stop, mainly with head punches, the stocky Harada (117¾) created a sensation when outscoring Jofre (118) to win the title and add bantam honours to his title- winning achievements at flyweight. Try as he might, Jofre, who made a slow start, could not make an impression on the challenger and was generally outworked. He also was not given the time and room to get most of his big punches off and when he did Harada took them without flinching.
