1971-11-07 [[Alfredo Marcano]] w rsc 4 (15) [[Kenji Iwata]], New Circus Bullring, Caracas, Venezuela - WBA. Referee: Luis Sulbaran. Refusing to play it safe against the heavy-handed Marcano (128¼), the Korean-born challenger traded punches over the opening two rounds before being made to pay for his transgressions in the third. Twice Iwata (129¾) was knocked down heavily in that session and twice he got up to make it to the bell. Round four saw Iwata storming into Marcano, only to be met by vicious left jabs and dropped by a left-right combination. Up at ‘four’, he survived another ‘eight’ count after being dropped by a left hook before charging into Marcano once again and belting him to the ropes. However, it was only a temporary release and with 40 seconds of the round remaining the referee called a halt after Iwata had been decked by a right hook to the body.
