1988-01-17 Wilfredo Vazquez drew 12 Takuya Muguruma, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 117-112, 114-116, 115-115. While there were no knockdowns, it was action all the way with Muguruma (118) concentrating on the body and Vazquez (117½) landing good left-hand jabs and hooks and right crosses. Fighting like a mini Gene Fullmer, the former middleweight number one, Muguruma, whose right eye was swollen shut by the sixth round, appeared to land more but the quality came from the champion.
