2003-06-23 Jose Antonio Aguirre w rsc 12 Keitaro Hoshino, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Bruce McTavish. In a hard-fought battle, the aggressive champion, often throwing punches recklessly, eventually tamed the skilful Hoshino (105) after he dropped him with a sweeping left hook for a long count in the final session. Although Hoshino eventually found his feet he was quickly in trouble again as Aguirre (105), with the bit between his teeth and firing punches in furiously, forced the referee to stop the contest with just 45 seconds left on the clock. Prior to the finish, Hoshino had done well in avoiding many of Aguirre’s big punches, while scoring cleanly himself.
