1996-12-21 Antonio Cermeno w pts 12 Yuichi Kasai, Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Mitch Halpern. Scorecards: 118-109, 117-112, 117-112. Defending against the mandatory challenger, Cermeno (121) was soon up and running and utilising his reach advantage and hand speed from a points-scoring perspective, being comfortable whether he was on the inside or outside. Kasai (121½), cut over the left eye in the fourth, was always trying to get to close quarters, but despite being persistently countered by jabs and combinations he never gave up and forced Cermeno to work hard to secure his win.
