1967-01-03 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. Although Medel, cut over the right eye and rocked several times, was still dangerous it was the constant attention to his body that slowed him down and eventually made him a stationary target for the champion’s fists.
