While most of the cleaner punching came from De Oliviera (153½), the champion never stopped working, despite much of his work being ineffectual and having no effect in the early stages. However, Wajima (152), sending in blows from both hands, started to land more effectively from the tenth onwards as De Oliviera tired and by sheer aggression he forced his way back into the contest. At the final bell it was certainly close and neither man complained at the result.
