1978-08-09 [[Masashi Kudo]] w pts 15 [[Eddie Gazo]], City Gym, Akita, Japan - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 146-143, 147-145, 145-146. Being cut over the left eye as early as the second did not do the champion many favours, but luckily for him many of the left jabs and one-twos tossed in by Kudo (153¼) throughout the opening four rounds missed the target. Boxing out of a crouch, as normal, Gazo (152¼) seemed strangely lethargic before getting home in the fifth with some wide rights and although working well inside with short hooks and uppercuts over the next round or so he eventually allowed himself to be pegged back again. By the 11th Gazo was fading, being deducted a point in the 12th for holding, and although Kudo began to increase his lead in the eyes of two of the judges, the last three sessions saw more negative action as both men continually hit and grabbed.
