31 July Yasuei Yakushiji w rtd 11 Il-Jung Byun, Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. In a return match, Yakushiji (117½) belted the southpaw Byun (118) to the canvas on five occasions, once in the first, third and tenth and twice in the 11th, before his corner threw the towel in on the 52 second mark with one round remaining when it had become patently obvious that their man could not carry on much longer. The champion was the bigger puncher of the two, but the challenger also had some success and was always a danger while the fight lasted.
