Devoid of any real excitement, the champion’s defence against Ozaki (146½) went the distance and although he was in control most of the way and had the better skills he rarely looked to do anything other than win on points. While Ozaki often plodded and occasionally sent in hurtful punches he was too one-paced and predictable to be a real threat and Starling (145) won as he pleased.
