1994-03-19 [[Eloy Rojas]] w rsc 5 [[Seiji Asakawa]], World Memorial Hall, Kobe, Japan - WBA. Referee: Pinit Prayadsab. Very much give and take, Rojas (124¾) seemed intent on getting his challenger out of there as soon as possible and was prepared to take blows in order to do so. Although Asakawa (126) survived the first two sessions to come back with some overarm swings of his own in the third, he was soon under the cosh again in the fourth, and in in the fifth he was smashed down twice, prompting the referee to halt the action 48 seconds into the round.
