Rungvisai finally got going in the second half of the fight but unlike in their original meeting 14 months ago, this time, Estrada did not back down but instead stood his ground and went to war with Rungvisai.

Although there were no knockdowns in the bout, there was no shortage of power punches landed in this action filled championship rematch. Ultimately, Rungvisai just ran out of time and although he made it a lot closer in the second half, Estrada was the rightful winner.

By scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 115-113, Estrada becomes the new WBC super flyweight champion. When asked about a possible rematch, Estrada said he would agree to a rematch but would ideally first have a unification bout with any of the other world champions at 115 pounds.

Japan Update

UNBEATEN YOSHINO KEEPS JAPANESE 135LB BELT

One of brightest future champions out of Japan might be unbeaten national lightweight ruler Shuichiro Yoshino (10-0, 8 KOs), 134.75, who impressively kept his belt by annihilating top contender Accel Sumiyoshi (11-5-3, 3 KOs), 135, at 2:12 of the seventh round in Tokyo, Japan, on April 11.
Yoshino
The clever and strong Yoshino, 27, whose amateur ledger was 104-20 prior to his entry into the paid ranks, kept battering the mandatory challenger so effectively that he finally caught up with him, dropping Accel to the deck and halting him with the referee’s intervention. Yoshino thus registered five stoppages in a row in his four successful defenses and title-winning bout in October 2017. Yoshino is worth watching.

UNBEATEN MORI BARELY KEEPS WBO AP 126LB BELT

Unbeaten 19-year-old southpaw prospect Musashi Mori (9-0, 5 KOs), 125, barely retained his WBO Asia Pacific featherweight belt when he eked out a split verdict (115-113 twice, 112-116) over former titlist Richard Pumicpic (21-10-2, 6 KOs), 125, over twelve hard-fought rounds in Kumamoto, Japan, on April 14. Mori, a baby faced lefty hard-puncher, had captured the regional belt by a controversial technical decision over Pumicpic in Kariya last November, and it was a grudge fight between the simon pure and the Japan-based veteran Filipino campaigner. Mori, now coached by Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, may need more experience before facing name opponents.
