2004-06-28 Eagle Den Junlaphan w tdec 8 Satoshi Kogumazaka, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBC. Referee: Nobuaki Uratani. Scorecards: 80-71, 80-71, 80-73. Making his first defence, Den Junlaphan (104¾) proved too strong and determined for his southpaw challenger, who was dropped by a solid right-left combination in the second and swept aside in every round before the fight came to a conclusion at 2.24 of the eighth. Having continually been pressed, Kogumazaka (104¾) was cut on the left side of his head in the sixth and again, virtually in the same place, following accidental head clashes, before the doctor advised that the action should be halted. The referee then called for the cards to be added up so that a decision could be arrived at.
