1974-08-24 [[Ben Villaflor]] w co 2 (15) [[Yasutsune Uehara]], Blaisdell Centre, Honolulu, Hawaii - WBA. Referee: Walter Cho. Despite the fear that the champion was not in the right frame of mind for this one, he took charge immediately and Uehara (129½) was subjected to a constant battering and dropped before the first round had come to a halt. Trying to slug it out was probably not the best thing for Uehara to do and he was soon on the floor again as Villaflor (129¾) again completely dominated with solid punches from both hands. Back on his feet, Uehara was soon decked again following a burst of cracking punches and was counted out after 1.17 of the second.
