1983-02-24 Jiro Watanabe w co 8 (15) Luis Ibanez, Municipal Gym, Tsu City, Japan - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Showing great speed and excellent footwork, Watanabe (114½) proved far too good for Ibanez (114¼). Well in control, Watanabe eventually dropped Ibanez twice in the eighth with heavy head punches, the second of which saw the challenger counted out on the 1.22 mark.
