1998-12-23 [[Jesus Rojas]] w pts 12 [[Satoshi Iida]], Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-111, 116-113. Having dislocated his right shoulder in the second round, Iida (115), forced to fight one handed and unable to use many of his other assets, went down on points to the veteran Rojas (114¾). It was a disappointing end to his title reign which had promised so much, but it was to his great credit that he made it to the final bell.
