1983-06-23 Jiro Watanabe w pts 15 Roberto Ramirez, The Prefectural Gym, Sendai, Japan - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 141-141, 143-141, 143-140. Ramirez (114) turned out to be very stubborn challenger indeed, when after taking two compulsory eight counts in the first round, and being dropped in the fourth and ninth sessions from heavy rights, he came back to work the body throughout to run Watanabe (114¾) close.
