1982-11-11 Jiro Watanabe w rtd 12 (15) Shoji Oguma, City Gym, Hamamatsu, Japan - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. With a damaged right optic giving him trouble, at 1.26 of the 12th Oguma (115) retired himself when his other eye was shut tight following a series of heavy jabs from the champion. Making good use of his five-inch reach advantage, Watanabe (114¾) always appeared to have his fellow southpaw under control.
