A stunning upset has happened!  Unheralded underdog Daishi Nagata (15-2-1, 6 KOs), 140, surprisingly captured the Japanese 140-pound belt when he dethroned previously unbeaten WBO#15 defending champ Koki Inoue (15-1, 12 KOs), 140, due to referee Someya’s halt at 2:17 of the seventh round in a scheduled ten on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan.

Koki, the cousin of the WBA super/IBF bantam kingpin Naoya Inoue, was a prohibitive favorite, but wasn’t sharp, nor swift, as usual only to allow Nagata to have the upper hand in the first half.  The game challenger opened a gash over the right optic of the hard-punching champ in a contest of southpaws. The interim tallies show Nagata ahead on points after the fifth: 49-46, 48-47 twice. Continue reading “Nagata upsets Inoue, wins Japanese 140lb belt”

Shimizu stops Tonomoto, keeps OPBF 126lb belt

OPBF featherweight champ Satoshi Shimizu (9-1, 9 KOs), 126, successfully kept his belt as he halted #14 Kyohei Tonomoto (9-3-1, 4 KOs), 126, at 2:10 of the seventh session in a scheduled twelve rounder on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. The elongated 5’10.5” southpaw Shimizu, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist who lost a 20-11 decision to eventual gold medalist Luke Campbell in the semi-final after defeating Isaac Dogboe in the first bout in London, decked the challenger twice in the opening session. They mixed it up hard thereafter, and it was Shimizu that took the initiative so obviously that the third man rightly intervened to save the loser from further punishment in round seven. Shimizu registered his fifth defense of the OPBF belt by scoring a comeback victory after suffering his first defeat at the hand of Filipino Joe Noynay in quest of his WBO Asia Pacific featherweight belt last July. This was his first appearance since.
