WBC world super-bantamweight champion Willie Jorrin travelled to the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan for the second defence of his title. In the opposing corner was Osamu Sata (24-1-1) who was making his first run at a world title.

After making a fast start, Jorrin dropped Sato twice in the 3rd round but didn't finish the challenger who got up and dictated the pace for the remainder of the bout.

The ringside judges couldn't find a winner after the 12 rounds and delivered a majority decision draw.

Scores: Massimo Barrovecchio 114-114 | Vincent Rodriguez 113-113 | Noppharat Sricharoen 112-114.

Sato captured the WBA world super-bantamweight crown in his next outing, an 8th round knockout of Thailand's Damrong Kongsuk.
