By Joe Koizumi

WBO junior lightweight champ Masayuki Ito (25-1-1, 13 KOs), 130, successfully made his initial defense when he battered #1 ranked Russian Evgeny Chuprakov (20-1, 10 Kos), 129.25, so furiously that his cornerman tossed in the towel for surrender at 2:11 of the seventh round on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

Takuma Inoue wins WBC interim 118lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten brother of “the Monster” Naoya, Takuma Inoue (13-0, 3 KOs), 118, successfully followed his footstep as he acquired the vacant WBC interim bantamweight belt by winning a unanimous decision over Petch CP Freshmart (AKA Tasana Salapat (48-1, 33 KOs), 118, over twelve heats on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan. All the judges agreed with a 117-111 tally in favor of Takuma.

But it wasn’t an easy fight at all since Petch, a taller southpaw, was an aggressor stalking the fast-handed Takuma, who often countered him with precision. After the eighth, the open scoring system showed Takuma leading on points—77-75, 78-74, 79-73. Petch, in round twelve, had Takuma at bay with a flurry of punches, pinning him to the ropes, but Takuma desperately fought back hard to survive the final crisis. The third man was Frank Garza (US).

Unbeaten welterweight Zino Meuli (13-0, 6 KOs) took a hard-fought majority decision over Josef Zahradnik (10-1, 5 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Bodensee-Arena in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland. Meuli started well, using his longer reach to keep the aggressive Zahradnik at bay while connecting with well-timed straight punches. Halfway through a very competitive fight it appeared that local man Meuli had gained control, but the visitor never gave up and finished stronger. Swiss Judge Joerg Mangott saw the fight completely even at 114-114, but he was overruled by 115-113 and 116-112 scores in favor of Meuli from Germany´s Alexander Plumanns and Howard Goldberg from South Africa.

Kurihara wins vacant OPBF 118lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Hard-punching Japanese Keita Kurihara (13-5, 11 KOs), 118, acquired the vacant OPBF bantamweight belt as he dropped compatriot Yuki Strong Kobayashi (14-8, 8 KOs), 118, four times, withstood his furious retaliation and emerged victorious with a unanimous nod (all 113-111) over hard-fought twelve rounds on Monday in Osaka, Japan.

The OPBF belt became vacant after former champ Mark John Yap, a Japan-based Filipino, lost to Takuma Inoue in a WBC eliminator this September. Kurihara, from Tokyo, had the local favorite on the deck in rounds one, two and five, but it wasn’t a lopsided affair because of Kobayashi’s persistent retaliatory attack. The twelfth and final session saw Kurihara floor the game aggressor with a vicious left hook—for the fourth time—in the closing second. Without the dramatic knockdown down the stretch it would have been a draw due to the loser’s admirable surge.
