1988-07-09 Gilberto Roman w rsc 5 Yoshiyuki Uchida, City Gym, Kawagoe, Japan - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Despite putting the champion down in the fourth Uchida (114¾) was always running second best to Roman (115), and the fifth round saw him finally overwhelmed. Down from combination punches at the start of the session, on resuming Uchida was dumped again, this time by a left hook, and the referee wisely called it off after 39 seconds when he was in the act of rising.
