3 January Fighting Harada w pts 15 Joe Medel, Aichi Prefectural Gym Nagoya, Japan - WORLD. Referee: Masao Kato. Scorecards: 76-67, 73-67, 72-68. Never letting up for the entire duration of the bout, Harada (117¾) successfully avenged an earlier defeat at the hands of the challenger, Medel (117¼), when pounding out a unanimous points victory. Medel, cut over the right eye, was rocked several times, but it was the constant attention to his body that slowed him down and eventually made him a stationary target for the champion’s fists.
