    Background: THE WORLD JUNIOR LIGHTWEIGHT BOXING CHAMPION, HIROSHI KOBAYASHI, HAD LITTLE TROUBLE IN DEFEATING ULISEES BOTERO, A BOXER FROM COLOMBIA, WHO BASED IN LOS ANGELES.

    IT WAS A 10-ROUND, NON-LITTLE FIGHT AT TOKYO'S KORAKUEN GYMNASIUM. BOTERO IS RANKED NUMBER ONE CONTENDER BY THE WORLD BOXING ASSOCIATION. HIS PLAN FROM THE BELL WAS TO GO FOR A KNOCK-OUT AND THEN CLAIM A TITLE FIGHT AGAINST THE JAPANESE. BUT HE RECKONED WITHOUT THE TITLE HOLDER'S FAST, NIMBLE FOOT WORK AND HIS CONSISTENT PUNCHING.

    THE JAPANESE ENDED THE FIGHT IN THE 2ND. MINUTE OF THE SIXTH ROUND. AT THE WEIGH-IN KOBAYASHI WAS 132 POUNDS AGAINST BOTERO'S 122 1/2.

    IT WAS KOBAYASHI'S SECOND NON-TITLE FIGHT SINCE HE BECAME WORLD CHAMPION LAST DECEMBER. HE DEFENDED THE TITLE IN MARCH AND DREW WITH RENE BARRIENTOS. HE PLANS A 2ND. TITLE DEFENCE IN OCTOBER - IN TOKYO.
