1989-06-10 Napa Kiatwanchai w rsc 11 Hiroki Ioka, Municipal Sports Arena, Osaka, Japan - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. Despite making a fast start, Ioka (105) soon faded after feeling the weight of the champion’s southpaw right hooks and was floored for the first time in his career in the fifth round. Although he recovered somewhat, Ioka again got caught with a barrage of heavy blows, this time in the 11th, which saw him being floored twice more by Kiatwanchai (103) before he was rescued by the referee on the 1.12 mark.
