  • Description

    PAUL FUJI OF HAWAII RETAINED HIS WORLD JUNIOR WELTERWEIGHT BOXING CROWN IN TOKYO ON THURSDAY NIGHT, WHEN HE DEFEATED WEST GERMAN CHALLENGER WILLY QUATUOR. FUJI KNOCKED OUT QUATUOR IN THE FOURTH ROUND WITH AN EXPLOSIVE RIGHT TO THE JAW.

    A CAPACITY OF 12,000 WATCHED THE BOUT IN THE KOKUGIKAN SUMO STADIUM IN TOKYO. FUJI HAD WON HIS TITLE IN A FIGHT IN THE SAME STADIUM AGAINST ITALY'S SANDRO LOPOPOLO IN APRIL THIS YEAR.

    QUATUOR, 39, A SOUTHPAW AND THE WORLD BOXING ASSOCIATION'S NO. 1 JUNIOR WELTERWEIGHT CONTENDER, WAS NOT FAVOURED TO WIN. BUT HE PUT UP A GOOD FIGHT IN THE EARLY STAGES, AND IN THE FIRST TWO ROUNDS TRADED PUNCHES BLOW FOR BLOW WITH FUJI.
