I thought the fight could've gone either way, lots of close rounds. The long trip might have affected Acosta. If they fight in the US I think Acosta beats him but Tanaka refused to fight outside of Japan.

Pretty even round 6 but Acosta might edge it. Acosta 57 - 56 Gave round 7 to Tanaka. 66 for both.
