Coming in as a substitute for [[Hyung-Chul Lee]], the WBA's leading contender, Lee (115) eventually got lucky having been outclassed in the opening four rounds, and dropped Onizuka (115) in the fifth with a cracking left hook. On getting up the champion took the fight to Lee, but lacked the power to damage him. Onizuka had to survive a heavy right uppercut in the eighth before taking up the initiative again and doing enough to please the judges.
