In a golden age of lightweight boxing in Australia, one man helped define the careers of two of our greatest sluggers. Masahiko ‘Fighting’ Harada was a multiple world champion and icon in his native Japan. But he is best remembered here for his battles with two Australian champions, Lionel Rose and Johnny Famechon. Rose would defeat Harada in Tokyo in 1968 to win the world bantamweight crown. In 1969, Harada fought Famechon in Sydney for the WBC featherweight belt. Willie Pep, sole judge and referee, declared it a draw after 15 rounds before changing his mind to give Famechon the fight. A year later, the pair staged an epic rematch in Tokyo’s Metropolitan Gym and this time there was no doubt. Famechon won by KO, hammering Harada through the ropes and ending his career. It’s from this moment we take our shirt, a replica of the Harada team as they watch their man tumble out of the ring and into the pages of history.
