Making his first defence, Numata (129½) was taken apart by the hard-hitting Kobayashi (129), who put his man down four times in all. The first knockdown came in the sixth round from a right to the jaw and Numata was dropped twice more from heavy rights in the 12th before being counted out on the 1.56 mark. Numata, who had taken a solid beating and was behind on all three cards, finished flat on his back, a position he was forced to endure for several minutes as the medics worked on him.
