1971-03-03 Hiroshi Kobayashi w pts 15 Ricardo Arredondo, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Scorecards: 73-70, 73-69, 73-69. Kobayashi (129¼) retained his title against the hard-hitting Arredondo (128½) with the minimum amount of fuss when outboxing his rival in a dull contest. In what was a clinical display, Kobayashi avoided most of the wild punches coming at him while picking Arredondo off. There were no knockdowns.
