1973-06-19 Kuniaki Shibata w pts 15 Victor Echegaray, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Scorecards: 73-70, 72-71, 72-68. Despite having trouble with the challenger’s longer reach and left jab throughout the fight, Shibata (129¾), the harder and more varied puncher of the two, consistently scored with good right hands over the top. Come the final session it looked close, but Shibata made certain of victory when putting Echegaray (128½) down twice for mandatory ‘eight’ counts.
