  • Description

    JAPAN'S HIROSHI KABAYASHI, THE WORLD JUNIOR LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION, RETAINED HIS CROWN WHEN HE MET ECUADOR'S CHALLENGER JAIME VALLADARES IN THE BUDOKAN HALL, TOKYO ON SATURDAY NIGHT (OCTOBER 5).

    THE FIGHT WENT TO THE JAPANESE TITLE HOLDER ON POINTS BY THE UNANIMOUS DECISION.

    KABAYASHI DOMINATED THE FIGHT FOR THE MOST PART, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS LITTLE SERIOUS ACTION IN THE LAST SIX ROUNDS. VALLADARES, ALTHOUGH TIRING, WAS ABLE TO KEEP AWAY FROM THE STRONG ATTACKS WHICH KABAYASKI CONTINUALLY LAUNCHED. VALLADARES TOOK ONE COMPULSORY COURT.

    IT WAS THE 53RD VICTORY FOR 24-YEAR OLD KABAYASHI, WHO HAS ONLY LOST EIGHT BOUTS IN HIS CAREER AND DRAWN THREE.
