1980-10-12 Yoko Gushiken w pts 15 Pedro Flores, Jissen Arena, Kanazawa, Japan - WBA. Referee: Vincent Rainone. Scorecards: 146-140, 146-145, 146-142. Having risen from a knockdown in the third round, Flores (107¾) took the fight to Gushiken (107½) and from then on it was relatively even, many thinking the challenger had won at the final bell. Both men finished facially damaged and it was a close call for Gushiken, who was making his 13th successful defence.
