1999-07-31 Hideki Todaka w pts 12 Jesus Rojas, Rainbow Hall, Nagoya, Japan - WBA. Referee: Rafael Ramos. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 115-114. Showing great determination, Todaka (115) dropped Rojas (115) a couple of times, in the first and third rounds, before the champion came back strongly with jabs and left-rights to take the fourth through to the seventh. It was then the challenger went up a gear, forcing Rojas on to the back foot until the latter came back with a late surge during the final two sessions in a fruitless effort to save his title.
