December 9th 1991-Tokyo, Japan
Hiroyuki Yoshino (20-3-1, 16) vs Hitoshi Kamiyama (20-1-1, 13) III
In 1991 Japanese fans saw the third meeting between Hiroyuki Yoshino and Hitoshi Kamiyama, who would both fight for world titles in 1992.
In recent years Japanese fighters have struggled to have success on the world scene in weights above Super Featherweight. That however hasn't stopped them from giving it a go as Hitoshi Kamiyama did when traveled to Argentina to fight against Julio Cesar Vazquez for the vacant WBA Light Middleweight title. Kamiyama, who had dominated the domestic scene at the weight, unfortunately found out the difference in class between the Japanese domestic scene and the world level and was stopped inside a round. Although the fight didn't last long it was a painful one for the Japanese fighter who took a pounding in the final minute.
