2003-04-26 [[Oscar Larios]] w pts 12 [[Shigeru Nakazato]], Ryogoku Sumo Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Toby Gibson. Scorecards: 114-111, 116-110, 116-110. Although Nakazato (122) made a bright start, after being cut on the forehead in the fourth the champion tried to finish matters in the fifth and dropped his rival with terrific left hook. Somehow Nakazato got through to the bell and showing remarkable powers of recuperation he almost floored Larios (122) in the sixth and eighth sessions as he went for victory. It was not to be though as Larios regrouped, using hit-and-run tactics to get himself through the last four hectic rounds against a skilful and tough opponent who impressed with his jab and movement.
