Scorecards: 70-68, 71-69, 74-71.Having worked the champion’s body in the first round Yoshio (129¼) again took the fight to Arredondo (129¼) in the next session with hard rights to the head. Thus the pattern of the fight was set, with Yoshio boring in and Arredondo making use of his reach, despite missing frequently. Although Yoshio appeared to be in front at the two-thirds stage, Arredondo made his move in the 11th as he pressed on with telling lefts and rights to the challenger’s face and with Yoshio in trouble at the final bell he just about deserved the decision in his favour, but it had been hard.
