Making a slow start, the champion found the tricky Barrientos (130) a difficult customer to deal with and fought well below par. Although he battered Barrientos throughout the fifth round after finally getting going, Kobayashi (129) was made angry when his nose bled badly when he was butted. It was becoming a hard fight for Kobayashi and Barrientos amazed the crowd when he belted the champion in the ninth with wild blows to head and body. In the 14th the Filipino again came on strong, forcing Kobayashi to back pedal furiously to avoid the body punches coming his way. The decision was always going to be in doubt and it certainly was not one of Kobayashi’s better nights.
