2001-11-11 Jose Antonio Aguirre w rsc 3 Wolf Tokimitsu, Budokan Martial Arts Hall, Okayama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Despite Tokimitsu (104½) getting off to a flier, using the ring and jabbing well, Aguirre (105) was beginning to find the range by the end of the second round himself and, in the third, he floored the challenger with a big overarm right. Barely beating the count, and visibly groggy, Tokimitsu was being punished almost at will when the referee made a timely intervention on the 1.43 mark.
