1995-05-24 Hiroshi Kawashima w pts 12 Seung-Koo Lee, Cultural Gym, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Scorecards: 117-112, 116-111, 116-111. Defending his title for the third time, Kawashima (115), who proved to be too fast and clever for the tough Lee (114¾), used the jab well to gain a clear points lead over the first seven rounds. In the eighth, however, the challenger cut loose with some effect, and in the tenth he dropped Kawashima, who was saved by the bell. Following that, the champion kept himself out of range in the 11th before mixing it up prior to run out a clear winner on all three cards.
