1997-04-29 [[Yokthai Sithoar]] drew 12 [[Satoshi Iida]], Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 114-114, 115-115, 113-116. Although Sithoar (114½) was the aggressor up until the eighth session he had been wild in his delivery and there was no doubt that had the fleet-footed Iida (115) been an effective counter puncher things might have been different. However, at that point the champion was tiring and the southpaw challenger certainly had the better of the remaining rounds despite suffering a cut on his left eye. It was desperately close at the final bell.
