1995-08-13 Eloy Rojas w pts 12 Nobutoshi Hiranaka, Municipal Gym, Tagawa City, Japan - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-111, 116-112. After controlling the first seven rounds with good jabs and combinations, Rojas (125¼) surprisingly went down in the eighth from a fairly innocuous left. But when the aggressive Hiranaka (125¾), who had been cut on the right eye in the third, was unable to assert himself the champion soon got back into his stride. Although Hiranaka gave it his best shot in the ninth, on tiring rapidly a big left hook almost put him away in the final session as Rojas continued his boxing lesson.
