1990-06-30 Khaosai Galaxy w rsc 8 Shunichi Nakajima, Municipal Gym, Chiang Mai, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Eddie Eckert. Although Nakajima (115) was expected to give the champion a tough fight he was soon under pressure as Galaxy (115) mixed up good defensive skills with solid lefts to the body and rights hooks to the head. Not to be outdone, Nakajima continued to attack, but was unable to prise the crafty Galaxy’s defences apart while leaving himself open to the counters. Then, when he was badly cut over both eyes in the eighth the referee had seen enough and brought matters to a close at 2.24 of the round.
