2005-01-03 [[Katsushige Kawashima]] w pts 12 [[Jose Navarro]], Ariake Coliseum, Tokyo, Japan - WBC. Referee: Mark Green. Scorecards: 109-120, 115-114, 115-113. In a battle of skill versus power the hard-hitting Kawashima (115) held on to his title, but it was much closer than one of the scorecards suggested as the lanky southpaw challenger proved a tough test. There were no knockdowns to report, but Kawashima was cut over the right eye in the second round before being similarly damaged on the left eye in the fifth. Subsequently, the action swayed to and fro, with Navarro (114½) displaying good skills and Kawashima beginning to concentrate on the body following a lack of success upstairs. Although fading towards the end, Navarro continued to keep his boxing together as the wild-swinging Kawashima poured in the leather and received warm applause at the final bell from an audience appreciative of his skills.
