1978-11-29 [[Sam Serrano]] w pts 15 [[Takao Maruki]], Aichi Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 146-136, 148-137, 159-144. Again making good use of his long reach, the champion peppered Maruki (129¼) from every conceivable angle as he romped to an easy one-sided victory over a man who started recklessly and was dropped in the fifth by a countering right. Up almost immediately, Maruki continued to throw overarm left hooks without success, but Serrano (129) was far too smart for him and in the tenth again dropped his slow-moving opponent with a sudden bust of punches. Ruled a slip, the only way that Maruki could win at this stage was by a kayo, but Serrano in recognising the man from Japan’s toughness was content to box his way home to a conclusive points win.
