1971-10-23 Masao Ohba w pts 15 Fernando Cabanela, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Enrique Jimenez. Scorecards: 75-64, 75-65, 74-65. Using the classic left jab and right cross against his wild, swinging challenger, Ohba (112) dominated the fight despite getting cut on the left eye. Cabanella (112), who had a point deducted in the ninth round for straying low, was generally unable to find the range but had some success at close quarters.
