1973-10-27 Chartchai Chionoi w pts 15 Susumu Hanagata, Hua Mark Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Enrique Jimenez. Scorecards: 72-66, 73-69, 72-67. Hanagata (110) made a good start with the jab, opening up a cut on the champion’s right eye in the second round, but by the middle stages Chionoi (112) had begun to find the range and gradually wore his rival down. There were some good dust-ups between the pair but Chionoi generally had the better of them.
