1975-06-07 Jae-Doo Yuh w rsc 7 (15) Koichi Wajima, Municipal Gym, Kitakyushi, Japan - WBA. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Both men started fast, but it was the champion who was the most successful early on as he chased the taller Yuh (154) down when trying to get to close quarters where he could work the South Korean over. However, the tricky Yuh had other ideas and Wajima (154) was left bleeding from the left ear in round three. At the end of the fifth there was a sensation when Wajima was floored moments after the bell rang to end the session and it was felt that he was not fully recovered by the start of the sixth. It was in the sixth that Yuh came on strong and although Wajima survived the round he was being hit and wobbled by fast combinations. It was clear that Wajima was now on his last legs and in the seventh after being battered and dropped three times the referee was forced to call a halt on the two-minute mark under the three-knockdown in a round ruling.
