With the victory, Estrada is now a 3-0 three division world champion and looks like a true standout in women’s boxing.

It was a fast-paced opening round as Tanajara showed the flash, Zepeda connected with the solid punches. Trading in the center in round three, Zepeda unloaded combinations connecting and backing Tanajara. Attacking on the inside in the fourth, Zepeda stalked and went to the body following up with some combinations upstairs as Tanajara boxed and could not keep Zepeda off him. Continuing to back Tanajara in the fifth, Zepeda continued to impress with good hand speed and effective punching as Tanajara kept backing away. Zepeda’s relentlessness did it as he attacked Tanajara, at the end of the sixth trainer Robert Garcia stopped the fight as his fighter had enough.

By Joe Koizumi

Aggressive ex-champ Miyo Yoshida (15-2, no KO), 114.75, regained WBO female world junior bantamweight belt as she avenged her previous defeat by edging out Tomoko Okuda (7-3-2, 1 KO), 114.5, a 38-year-old high school teacher, by a hairline split decision (96-94 twice for Yoshida, 94-96 for Okuda) over ten hard-fought rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was a close contest, but Miyo maintained the pressure and connected with right crosses to have the upper hand. Yoshida, a gutsy single mother, cried for joy with her regaining the belt.
