1979-04-08 Yoko Gushiken w co 7 (15) Alfonso Lopez, Kuramae Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Ken Morita. Holding back for the first four rounds, Gushiken (108) allowed Lopez (108) to get off speedy right hands that built up a bit of a lead. However, picking up the pace in the fifth with body attacks the champion found the opening for a right hook to the jaw in the seventh, a punch that put Lopez on his knees to be counted out at the 2.47 mark.
