1992-03-31 Hiroki Ioka w pts 12 Noel Tunacao, Kitakyushi Municipal Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Scorecards: 119-111, 117-111, 117-114. Previously undefeated, the challenger, Tunacao (106½), was unable to get to Ioka (108) and was in the main kept at distance with the left jab. Although he looked dangerous in sporadic attacks, mainly with the use of combinations, Tunacao had great difficulty in sustaining any advantage he may have had and survived because Ioka failed to open up, being content to pick up the points.
