1989-03-25 Antonio Esparragoza w co 10 Mitsuru Sugiya, City Arena, Kawasaki, Japan - WBA. Referee: Eddie Eckert. While Sugiya (125¾) proved to be a worthy challenger and kept coming back with heavy punches of his own, especially in the fourth round, he was floored four times by right hands, once in the third, twice in the sixth, and finally in the tenth when he was counted out on the 2.07 mark. With both men looking weary during the middle rounds, Esparragoza (125¾) having damaged his right hand, he was obviously conserving his energy at that stage prior to opening up.
