1996-04-29 Alimi Goitia w rsc 5 Satoshi Iida, Rainbow Hall, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. The southpaw champion got down to work early and was well on top when he put Iida (114¾) down with a hard right at the end of the fourth. Sensing the end, Goitia (114½) came out for the kill in the fifth and a flurry of left-right combinations prompted the referee to call a halt 25 seconds into the round.
