1995-01-18 [[Hiroshi Kawashima]] w pts 12 [[Jose Luis Bueno]], Cultural Gym, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 118-109, 116-111, 115-114. Generally outworked, Bueno (115) had great difficulty in staying with Kawashima (114½), but was assisted by the latter’s often wayward punching. However, once the current champion got into his stride he pulled away from the former champion, who responded by winging in punches more in desperation than at the target and in the seventh following a clash of heads Bueno was actually counted over. Although the final stages saw Kawashima in control he could not finish the challenger off, Bueno coming with a gallop when winning the last two sessions to narrow the gap.
