1994-08-07 Hiroshi Kawashima w pts 12 Carlos Salazar, Ariake Coliseum, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Vince Delgado. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-113, 115-113. In a battle between fellow southpaws, it was the jabs and one-twos of the speedy Kawashima (115) against the aggressive and durable Salazar (115), whose speciality was getting to close quarters and throwing round-arm punches. Both men gave it everything and were pretty much exhausted by the final bell, but it was the cleaner punching of the champion that won the day.
