1979-09-06 Ricardo Cardona w pts 15 Yukio Segawa, City Gym, Hachinohe, Japan - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 145-139, 147-140, 147-146. Having survived a first-round knockdown after being caught by a solid right hook to the head, Cardona (121½) used his longer reach and straighter punching to great effect to eventually outscore his southpaw challenger. With a boring-in style, Segawa (121), cut on the left eye in the fourth, proved a dangerous foe until he ran out of gas towards the end and was floored by a right-left-right combination before the bell ended the fight.
