1974-10-08 [[Oscar Albarado]] w rsc 7 (15) [[Ryu Sorimachi]], Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA/WBC. Referee: Dick Young. Defending his newly won title for the first time, Albarado (154) soon made his presence felt when meeting up with Sorimachi (152¾) and after a hard-hitting opener the latter was dropped in the second by a solid left for the statutory ‘eight’. By the fourth it looked all over for Sorimachi, who had been chased from pillar to post, but he remained upright before being smashed down by a heavy one-two in the fifth. Now bloody and battered, Sorimachi tried to get on his bike, but he was soon hunted down and after being decked by Albarado again, in the seventh, the referee came to his rescue at 2.17 of the session.
