1974-10-01 Shoji Oguma w pts 15 Betulio Gonzalez, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Ray Solis. Scorecards: 148-144, 147-143, 144-148. Having been narrowly outpointed by Gonzalez (109½) in a non-title fight the previous May, Oguma (112), a southpaw, gained revenge and took the WBC title at the same time after what had been an evenly balanced match. There was no doubt that it had been close, but Oguma was the more positive of the pair and set an aggressive pace from the start, often backing Gonzalez up to dominate before the champion came more into it in the final third.
