1994-07-31 Yasuei Yakushiji w rtd 11 Jung-Il Byun, Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. In a return match, Yakushiji (117½) belted the southpaw Byun (118) to the canvas on five occasions, once in the first, third and tenth, and twice in the 11th, before the latter's corner threw the towel in on the 52-second mark with one round remaining when it had become patently obvious that their man could not carry on much longer. The champion was the bigger puncher of the two, but the challenger also had some success, always being a danger while the fight lasted.
