On this day in fistiana...

Masao Ohba vs. Orlando Amores

June 20, 1979

Like his heavier Mexican counterpart Salvador Sanchez, Masao Ohba was a great Japanese f;lyweight who died tragically in a car crash while still an active champion and so much of his greatness was yet to be shown. Like Stanley Ketchel, Sanchez, and many others, Ohba is one of boxing's immortals.
