2001-03-11 Celes Kobayashi w rsc 10 Leo Gamez, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Persistently punching to the body Kobayashi (115) never allowed Gamez (113¾) to get going, and when the latter was gashed over the right eye in the fifth the writing was on the wall. However, the champion fought back strongly in the ninth before a countering left to the jaw decked him in the tenth and brought about the referee’s intervention with 51 seconds of the session remaining.
