1966-06-01 [[Fighting Harada]] w pts 15 [[Eder Jofre]], Tokyo, Martial Arts Hall, Japan - WORLD. Referee: Nicholas Pope. Scorecards: 69-68, 71-68, 71-69. Starting in whirlwind fashion, Harada (118) merely carried on where he left off in their previous battle and gave Jofre (116) no time to relax, bombarding the former champion without let up to have him swaying and badly cut over the left eye in the latter stages. Outspeeded and outgamed, Jofre was unable to stop his man crowding him to the ropes where most of the damage was done and at the final bell he was exhausted.
