    Default Boxing Oddity ~ California State Heavyweight Championship ~ Tokyo, Japan

    Tuesday ~ March 12, 1974

    Metropolitan Gym ~ Tokyo, Japan

    USA California State Heavyweight Championship

    * Howard 'Kayo' Smith
    * 'Irish' Tony Doyle

    Yes, this did happen.

    The California State Athletic Commission approved and sanctioned this bout.

    Howard 'Kayo' Smith had won the title back on June 8, 1973 - when he defeated
    'Giant' Jack O'Halloran over 12-Rounds in San Diego, California.

    Unable to get a decent money bout, Howard Smth accepted a $3000 Fight Purse to
    defend his California State Championhip in Tokyo, Japan.

    Howard was based out of San Diego, California.

    In a more absurd angle, his opponent, the veteran 'Irish' Tony Doyle, was based
    out of Salt Lake City, Utah.
