1977-01-01 Guty Espadas w rtd 7 (15) Jiro Takada, Nihon University Auditorium, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Servio Tulio Ley. A one-sided affair from the beginning saw Takada (112) dropped in the third round before bravely fighting back despite a badly swollen right eye. Unfortunately, his situation was compounded when the other eye began to close. Finally, at 1.46 of the seventh, the towel was thrown into the ring as Espadas (111¼) was pounding the challenger at will along the ropes.
