1988-02-05 Marlon Starling w pts 12 Fujio Ozaki, Convention Centre, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-114, 117-112. Devoid of any real excitement, the champion’s defence against Ozaki (146½) went the distance. 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, occasionally sending in hurtful punches, he was too one-paced and predictable to be a real threat, Starling (145) winning as he pleased.
