1995-12-19 [[Shinji Takehara]] w pts 12 [[Jorge Castro]], Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Scorecards: 116-114, 118-112, 117-111. Losing for only the fifth time in 105 fights, Castro (160) was shorn of his title when the tall Takehara (160) started fast and staggered the champion in the opening round with an overarm right. Although Castro tried hard to get in the fight, he was dropped in the third by a terrific left to the body and on getting up he was on the end of Takehara’s jab for the next three sessions. Even though Castro came on strong in the seventh and eighth, Takehara came back hard with solid combinations in the ninth before boxing his way through the remaining three sessions.
