Chris John of Indonesia retained his WBA featherweight title with a technical draw against Japanese Satoshi Hosono on Sunday.
American referee Rafael Ramos stopped the scheduled 12-round bout in the third round after the 32-year-old John sustained two cuts - on the right forehead and left temple - due to a head butt.
It was John's 18th title defense, having earned the belt in 2003 by defeating Oscar Leon of Columbia.
The victory extended his record to 48-0-3 while Hosono's fell to 23-2-1.
In an earlier bout, South African Simpiwe Vetyeka became the new IBO featherweight champion after defeating another Indonesian, Daud Yordan, with a technical knockout just before the end of their 12-round contest.
