Ken Shiro stops #1 Taconing, keeps WBC 108lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda (to come soon)

Fast-moving and quick-punching, unbeaten Japanese Ken Shiro (16-0, 9 KOs), 107.75, successfully made his sixth defense of the WBC light-flyweight belt when he swept the first three rounds with his hit-and-run tactics and scored a fine TKO victory over top-ranked Filipino Jonathan Taconing (28-4-1, 22 KOs), 108, at 1:00 into the fourth session on Friday in Osaka, Japan. The baby-faced champ, 27, kept whipping the hard-punching but less accurate Filipino from the start as he made best use of his faster footwork that obviously kept Taconing from connecting vaunted solid southpaw lefts. Taconing occasionally tried to connect with his roundhouse lefts to the shifty champ, who, however, continually made himself a moving target. The third saw an accidental butt that produced a gash over the right eyebrow of Taconing with a point deducted from the uncut champ due to the WBC rules. In round four, Ken sharply connected with a vicious right followed by a solid left hook, which badly decked the game Filipino to the deck. Taconing managed to raise himself and attempted to go on, but his legs apparently betrayed his fighting spirit with referee Fran Garza (US) duly calling a halt at a right time.

Noynay halts unbeaten ex-Olympian Shimizu, keeps WBO AP 130lb belt

Filipino sharpshooter Joe Noynay (18-2-1, 7 KOs), 129.75, impressively kept his WBO Asia Pacific 130-pound belt as he battered previously unbeaten 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Satoshi Shimizu (8-1, 8 KOs), 129.75, from the outset, dropped him twice in the first round, kept whipping the damaged Japanese and finally halted him at 2:18 of the sixth round in a scheduled twelve rounder on Friday in Osaka, Japan.

It took place beneath the WBA middleweight title bout of Rob Brant and Ryota Murata at the Edion Arena Osaka, where people gloomily witnessed an unexpected massacre. It had been regarded as Shimizu’s step en route to his world title crack in the near future, but Noynay was such a great nuisance that he completely destroyed his dream. The fatal sixth saw Shimizu, probably due to his deteriorated eyesight, abruptly quit by himself to be declared a TKO loser. It was a shocking scene.

Inoue’s cousin Koki keeps Japanese 140lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Japanese southpaw, “The Monster” Naoya Inoue’s cousin Koki Inoue (14-0, 11 KOs), 140, successfully retained his Japanese super lightweight belt as he decked #8 Ryuji Ikeda (14-6-3, 9 KOs), 139.75, in the second and third rounds and finally halted him with the referee’s intervention at 0:34 of the fifth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.
Koki Inoue20
Koki, 27, captured the national belt by a unanimous decision over defending champ Valentine Hosokawa here this April, and made his initial defense with ease. Koki, a tall and sturdy lefty, overpowered and outpunched the overmatched challenger, decked him with a southpaw left in the second and with a right hook in the third—taking a complete control of the contest. Having him badly staggering backward with a solid left, the ref called a well-received halt to save the loser in the fatal fifth.

Andrade Sulecki0009
Andrade dropped Sulecki in the 1st round landing hard, wild, left hooks. Sulecki took a pounding but survived the round. In round 3, it was more power and speed from the champion as Andrade’s timing and precision wouldn’t allow Sulecki to score at all. Andrade kept Sulecki at bay with his jab to the chin, and when the opportunity arose, came in with the left all night from a variety of angles. Sulecki had absolutely no answers, in any of the rounds. Andrade’s confidence grew to the point that later in the fight, he was daring Sulecki to hit him with his hands down. The final scores were all 120-107. Continue reading “Andrade beats Sulecki, still WBO middle champion”

Alexis Espino (3-0, 2 KO’s) TKO’d Kerby Saint-Juste (0-1) in the 2nd round of a scheduled 4 rounder at super middleweight. In the 1st, Espino dropped Saint-Juste with left and right hooks as he smothered him on the ropes. In the 2nd, Espino floored his opponent twice, finishing the show with a left hook to the head. The referee immediately waved the fight at 1:59 in round 2.

‘The Bakooka’ Mark DeLuca (24-1, 13 KO’s) defeated ‘The Lumberjack’ Brandon Brewer (23-1-1, 11 KO’s) in a 10 rounder at middleweight. DeLuca’s fast hands and straight left hand took control early in the bout, as he continued his rise from prospect to contender at 154 lbs. Both fighters were bloodied, and seemed to tire a bit, attributing it to taking the fight on short notice. However, DeLuca roused the crowd several times in the contest with 1-2 combinations but couldn’t finish the show as he wanted in knockout fashion. Brewer was certainly tougher than expected, but the judges scored it 99-91, 98-92, and 97-93 all for DeLuca. Continue reading “Undercard Results from Providence, Rhode Island”
