1992-04-10 Katsuya Onizuka w pts 12 Thanomsak Sithbaobay, Metropolitan Gym, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 115-114, 115-114, 116-114. Fighting for the title that had been vacated by Khaosai Galaxy, the unbeaten Onizuka (115), cut on the right eye in the fifth, appeared lucky to be crowned champion after being dominated by Sithbaobay (115) during the first five rounds. Despite often being pinned on the ropes and battered from all angles, from the sixth onwards Onizuka got more and more into the fight while still did not seeming to have done enough.
