11 September Jeff Chandler w rsc 10 (15) Eijiro Murata, Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. Giving Murata (118) another crack at the title, Chandler (118) hammered his old rival with every punch in the book and knocked him down in the second and third rounds with heavy rights before taking him apart with six rounds to go. Behind on the scorecards, Murata, his right eye badly swollen, was ready to be taken in the tenth and he was floored three times before the referee rescued him on the 1.54 mark.
