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, Uehara (129½) being 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) continued to dominate with solid punches from both hands. Back on his feet, after Uehara was quickly decked again following a burst of cracking punches he was counted out at 1.17 of the second.
