Arena in the Pacific?

Does anyone know of a movie similar to Fredric Brown's short story "Arena," (or the Star Trek episode of the same name) that takes place on a Pacific island, with an American and a Japanese soldier pitted against each other? Note: I just watched Boorman's Hell in the Pacific

I'm convinced I saw such a movie, possibly made for TV, back in the '70s. One scene in particular is stuck in my head—one of the combatants is cut while sliding down the trunk of a tree and develops gangrene in his leg.
