1978-01-29 Yoko Gushiken w rsc 14 (15) Aniceto Vargas, Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Masao Kato. Following a cautious start, Gushiken (107¼) came alive to outpunch the puncher and cut his forehead before forcing two standing counts in the 11th round and one in the 13th. By now the game Vargas (106½) was merely a punch bag and after being finally dropped in the 14th session, the referee called it off after just 27 seconds had elapsed to save the brave challenger from further punishment.
