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. It was in that round, however, 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.
