    Background: Panama's Hilario Zapata stormed to victory in the WBC (World Boxing Council) light-flyweight title fight in Tokyo. It took him just eight rounds to retain his crown for the second time. Challenger Tadashi Tomori of Japan had no answer to the 24-year old champion's powerful assault. He was dumped on the canvas three times -- twice in the eight round of the scheduled 15-round bout. Mexican referee Ray Solis spared Tomori further punishment after one minute 59 seconds of the eighth. Tomori began well with a series of good body blows but suffered a bad cut over the left eye early on. The referee stopped the fight twice in the sixth round to let a doctor inspect the cut, which bled profusely.
