1995-01-30 Yuri Arbachakov w pts 12 Oscar Arciniega, Tsukisappu Green Dome, Sapporo, Japan - WBC. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-112, 116-112. There was no doubting that Arbachakov (111¼), said to have had a recent bout of flu, was not at his best and that Arciniega (110½) took full advantage of the champion’s lethargy without ever looking likely to win. Arbachakov was always the aggressor, having the Mexican on the back foot throughout.
