1980-01-22 Eusebio Pedroza w pts 15 Spider Nemoto, Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Nate Morgan. Scorecards: 147-140, 148-138, 147-146. With an 11-inch reach advantage, Pedroza (126) could not miss Nemoto (125½) and although there were no knockdowns due to the challenger’s durability, his dominance was ultimately complete. Nemoto, despite lacking accuracy, kept boring in to send in overarm blows that forced Pedroza to fight every step of the way in the sixth, and was a nuisance right up until the 11th before being totally outboxed and outpunched over the last four sessions.
