1996-04-27 Hiroshi Kawashima w pts 12 Cecilio Espino, Ryogoku Sumo Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Scorecards: 120-107, 119-110, 118-109. Espino (115) gave it everything he had in the opening two rounds as he looked to take the champion out of his stride, but having failed Kawashima (115) took over and ran out a clear points winner. It was clear that Espino lacked the experience required to be fighting at this level.
