1975-10-12 Alexis Arguello w co 5 (15) Royal Kobayashi, Kuramae Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Bringing height-and-reach advantages to the ring gave Arguello (125½) the opportunity to utilise his fast left jab, and by the third round the challenger’s left eye was almost closed. Obviously at a disadvantage, with Kobayashi (125¾) rarely able to penetrate Arguello’s guard with his favoured hooks, hard counters coming his way eventually took their toll. In the fifth, as Kobayashi came forward he was belted by a left-right to the head before a left hook to the body dropped him for the full count with 13 seconds of the round remaining.
