1979-01-07 Yoko Gushiken w co 7 (15) Rigoberto Marcano, Municipal Gym, Kawasaki, Japan - WBA. Referee: Tony Perez. Defending his title successfully for the seventh time, Gushiken (107) got off to a good start with southpaw rights and lefts to the head of Marcano (107), but had to wait until round seven before finally nailing his man with a series of head blows. Marcano, who had previously gone the distance with Gushiken, slumped to the floor and was counted out 36 seconds into the round.
