1982-02-13 Ossie Ocasio w pts 15 Robbie Williams, Rand Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - WBA. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Scorecards: 146-144, 147-143, 144-148. Ocasio (188¾) made the better start, scoring well from both hands, especially with body blows, but following a couple that strayed below the belt he had a point deducted in the fourth round. Around that time Williams (186¾) came into the fight more, favouring jabs and crosses, and things were nicely balanced before Ocasio came on strongly from the eighth through to the 12th. It was in the 12th that Williams had Ocasio going after a big left hook landed and for the next three sessions the South African fighter went after the latter, banging in blows from all angles, and finishing the stronger of the two. Although the referee thought that Williams had done enough the two judges otherwise and was Ocasio who got the nod.
