1996-07-20 Daniel Zaragoza w rsc 7 Tsuyoshi Harada, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. In a battle of southpaws, Zaragoza (122) was far too knowledgeable for his 28-year-old challenger and almost finished him off in the first round with heavy lefts. Badly cut in the second, Harada (121¼) bravely struggled on without being able to hit the target often enough for it to be competitive, although rallying on occasion. At the end of the fifth he was in big trouble and in the seventh after he was pounded along the ropes with solid punches the referee had seen enough and brought matters to a halt at 2.17 of the round.
