1980-11-20 [[Yasutsune Uehara]] w pts 15 [[Leonel Hernandez]], Kuramae Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Chin-Kook Kim. Scorecards: 149-147, 149-146, 141-148. In a fight that was difficult to score, Uehara (129¼), defending his title for the first time, found it difficult to land a punch at times as the cagey Hernandez (129¼) stayed on the outside jabbing away at speed and often using the open glove. There were a few rounds where Uehara was able to work the midsection, but more often than not he was out of range and wild as he chased his slippery foe. The only time that Hernandez looked like he wanted the belt was when a triple left hook shook Uehara up in the 13th, but he soon went back to his old routine before the final bell brought to an end what was a dismal affair.
