1979-07-06 Betulio Gonzalez w co 12 (15) Shoji Oguma, Prefectural Gym, Utsunomiya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Under pressure for most of the fight, Gonzalez (111¾) somehow found a big right that chinned Oguma (112) and sent him crashing to the canvas to be counted out at 1.22 of the 12th round. Prior to being kayoed, the challenger, despite being cut on the left eye, was confident of winning another version of the championship he once held.
