1995-11-08 Hiroshi Kawashima w rsc 3 Boy Aruan, Ryogoku Sumo Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Carlos Padilla. Having survived a nasty moment when he was decked after the referee had called for the men to break, Kawashima (115) came back strongly in the third round to drop Aruan (114½) twice. Outgunned, the slow-moving challenger was rescued by the third man on the 1.57 mark, following the second knockdown, when it was obvious he would not get through the round.
