1992-09-17 Victor Rabanales w rsc 9 Joichiro Tatsuyoshi, Castle Hall, Osaka, Japan - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Having come back after surgery to correct an eye problem, Tasuyoshi (117¼) started quite well before succumbing to body punches and being rescued by the referee after 79 seconds of the ninth round had been clocked. Both men had scored well to the body throughout, but it was Rabanales (117½) who came out on top.
