    Good fighter was Paul Hodkinson, but he used to suffer terrible eye injuries!

    Hoko was a classy fighter - really aggressive and a hard puncher. First tilt at a world title ended in failure when Marcos Villasana bust Hoko's face up until he simply couldnt see the punches coming. Villasana didn't have the same success in the rematch though, with Hoko landing the world title when he outboxed the Mexican.

    Hoko should have gone on to have a longer and more lucrative reign as world champ. He made a few succesful defences, including one easy one over the shopworn former Barry McGuigan conquerer Steve Cruz in Belfast, but his time at the top was terminated by Goyo Vargas, who stopped him in the later rounds. Vargas was a class act though, so it was no disgrace to lose that fight. A years break before he stepped back into the ring with Steve Robinson was perhaps too long, as he appeared to have underestimated the tough Welshman, again being stopped in the later rounds.

    Depite these later reverses, I was suprised at the time that Hoko never stepped back in the ring to give it one more go. He was still young and had something left to offer. Perhaps he no longer had the appetite for the game.
