1973-01-02 [[Masao Ohba]] w co 12 (15) [[Chartchai Chionoi]], Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Having survived a first-round knockdown and picked up a badly damaged leg muscle into the bargain, Ohba (111½) had got going by round seven and from then on it was just one-way traffic. Finally, in the 12th, the champion put his punches together and Chionoi (109¼) was in trouble, being floored three times before the referee counted him out as the bell rang to end the round.
