2000-12-06 Keitaro Hoshino w pts 12 Jomo Gamboa, Pacifico Convention Hall, Yokohama, Japan - WBA. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-113, 115-113. In winning, Hoshino (105) became Japan’s oldest boxer to win a world title for the first time, his aggression sealing victory. Gamboa (104¾), who disappointed while looking sluggish and one-paced, rarely threatened until the final third but by then his chance had gone.
