2005-09-25 Yutaka Niida w tdec 10 Eriberto Gejon, The Arena, Yokohama, Japan - WBA. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 96-95, 96-95, 93-97. Making a good start, the challenger was soon into his stride, throwing a steady stream of left jabs before Niida (104¼) started to get home with left and right hooks to head and body in the fourth. Although Gejon (104½) was fighting a cautious battle it was still close coming into the tenth and nobody at that stage would have taken bets on the winner. It was in that round that an accidental clash of heads left Gejon with a deep cut over the right eye and following the referee’s decision to stop the action in order to go to the cards on the 2.01 mark, Niida got the nod.
