1981-05-12 Jose Antonio Avelar w co 7 (15) Shoji Oguma, City Gym, Mito City, Japan - WBC. Referee: Davy Pearl. Proving to be a powerful puncher, Avelar (111¼) finally caught up with Oguma (112) to finish him off after 56 seconds of the seventh round, following a tremendous left hook and right cross on the button. The champion, who was counted out, had earlier kept the fight at range and mixing it proved to be his downfall.
