1998-03-08 Joichiro Tatsuyoshi w pts 12 Jose Rafael Sosa, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 120-118, 117-111, 116-112. Showing a distinct lack of aggression for a challenger, Sosa (116¾) was outboxed all the way by the popular Tatsuyoshi (118), who outjabbed his shorter rival constantly. Occasionally Tatsuyoshi let his punches go, but unable to move Sosa he had to settle for the points.
