1992-04-10 Akinobu Hiranaka w rsc 1 Edwin Rosario, City Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. When both men came out firing off punches, and neither relenting, it became a real slugging match fought out in the centre of the ring. It could not last, and when the champion was sent wobbling into the ropes with Hiranaka (139½) in hot pursuit, smashing in rights and lefts, it seemed to be all over. However, with Rosario (140) even punching back at times Hiranaka suddenly appeared arm weary. Regardless, with Hiranaka continuing to throw big shots, when a salvo of left-rights sent Rosario lurching across the ring at 1.32 the referee brought the contest to a halt.
