2003-09-07 Oscar Larios w rsc 2 Kozo Ishii, Rainbow Hall, Nagoya, Japan - WBC. Referee: Richie Davies. The challenger began well enough, but towards the end of the first round he was hammered to the floor following a series of heavy overarm rights and left hooks. Saved by the bell, Ishii (122) came up for the second session only to quickly run into another barrage of blows from a rampant Larios (121¾), which dropped him. Up again and with Larios looking to finish the job, the referee saw no point in allowing Ishii to continue and with 2.02 of the round gone he stopped the contest.
