1996-08-13 Keiji Yamaguchi w pts 12 Carlos Murillo, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-111, 115-113. In a return meeting demanded by the WBA, Yamaguchi (108) proved that his earlier victory was no fluke, winning virtually every round with his excellent footwork and jab making Murillo (107¾) appear sluggish. Apart from sporadic aggression from the challenger, it was Yamaguchi all the way.
