1981-03-08 Pedro Flores w rtd 12 (15) Yoko Gushiken, City Gym, Gushikawa, Japan - WBA. Referee: Steve Crosson. In a return match, Flores (107¾) learned from the earlier experience to batter Gushiken (107¾) to defeat at 1.45 of the 12th round, when the latter’s corner threw the towel in. Countering mercilessly, the challenger had forced a standing count in the eighth before really getting on top in the 12th and putting Gushiken down for eight immediately prior to the retirement.
