4 July Fighting Harada w pts 15 Bernardo Caraballo, Martial Arts Hall, Tokyo, Japan - WORLD. Referee: Ko Toyama. Scorecards: 72-66, 71-68, 72-68. Decked in the first round, the challenger, Caraballo (118), who was also cut over the left eye in the fifth, survived the heavy artillery to stay with Harada (118) before being worn down in the latter stages and losing on the scorecards. Harada, who had to take off 36 pounds in three months, was cut over the left eye himself in the eighth but still had enough to keep going. Although it was felt he had finally outgrown the weight class, Harada’s next opponent would be Lionel Rose, an aborigine who had taken the division by storm during the past 18 months with victories over some of the division’s leading men.
