    Background: Japan's Koichi Wajima retained his World Junior Middleweight boxing title on points in Tokyo on Tuesday (February 5th) after a fast and fierce 15-round battle with Brazilian contender, Miguel de Oliveira. It was the sixth time that the 30-year-old Wajima had successfully defended his title.

    A previous title fight between the two men a year ago had ended in a draw -- a decision which drew protests from the Brazilian camp. This time the white-booted Wajima attacked with whirlwind aggression from the start. The Brazilian got in some good uppercuts and right crosses, but fought mainly on the retreat -- a fact borne out by the burns on his back caused by the ring ropes.

    Oliveira's technique was polished enough for Japanese referee Seiji Ebine to make it a draw at 73 points each. But the Japanese judges Akiyoshi Sasaki and Takeaki Kanaya both put Wajima a couple of points ahead, and this decided the contest.
