By Joe Koizumi

Hard-punching prospect, WBO ASPAC #1 ranked welterweight Yuki Beppu (20-1-1, 19 KOs), 146.75, collected another victim as he polished off Indonesian super lightweight champ Roy Mukhlis (31-11-4, 23 KOs), 143.75, with a single body shot at 1:08 into the opening session of a scheduled eight on Monday in Kurume, Japan.

Short but sturdy like Shawn Porter, Beppu, 28, connected with a well-timed shot to the midsection, which sent the Indonesian to the deck in agony.  Mukhlis, 32, who previously had an ambitious shot at then WBA 130-pound champ Takashi Uchiyama here but fell in the fifth nine years ago, barely raised himself but couldn’t resume fighting to be counted out by the referee.  The victor Beppu is scheduled to face former national champ Ryota Yada in quest of the vacant WBO Asia Pacific welterweight belt in Osaka in December, which will be publicly announced soon.

WBC #11 Japanese 122-pound champ Yusaku Kuga (19-3-1, 13 KOs), 121.75, impressively retained his national 122-pound belt as he needed just 95 seconds into the opening session to dispatch JBC#3 Yosuke Fujiwara (18-7, 5 KOs), 121.5, on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.
Kuga Fujiwara01
Having forfeited his national belt to lefty speedster Shingo Wake on a tenth and final round stoppage in July of the previous year, Kuga regained his belt after his conqueror’s relinquishment. The sturdy and muscular hard-puncher Yusaku decked the victim with a looping left hook and floored him again with a vicious right. Though Fujiwara, four years his senior at 32, wobblingly stood up to resume fighting, the ref Yoshida declared a well-timed halt to save the loser.

Former WBO world challenger Masataka Taniguchi (12-3. 7 KOs), 105, barely won the JBC mandatory right against the national titlist in an eliminator as he survived a fifth round visit to the deck and earned a unanimous nod (77-74 twice, 78-74) over Kai Ishibashi (6-1, 6 KOs), 105, over eight hard-battled rounds on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.
Taniguchi Ishizawa01
The southpaw Taniguchi had failed to win the WBO belt from Vic Salazar due to a unanimous decision loss this February, and then decided to pursue the Japanese national belt on his comeback trail. He persistently outpunched the previously unblemished hard-punching prospect exclusively to the breadbasket, which effectively weakened the less experienced Kai.

Perennial contender Froilan Saludar (31-3-1, 22 KOs), 114.5, Philippines, impressively acquired the vacant WBO Asia Pacific super-flyweight belt as he proved too strong for talented but less experienced WBO AP#6/JBC#22 Tsubasa Murachi (4-1, 3 KOs), 114.75, a Japanese novice, badly dropped him three times and scored a lopsided TKO victory at 0:54 of the eighth round in a scheduled twelve on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.
Saludar Murachi01
Murachi, 22, scored a flash knockdown of the more experienced Filipino, 30, with a solid right in the first round, but he couldn’t capitalize on his opening attack only to lose following sessions due to Froilan’s superior power and precision. The flattened Japanese was carried out of the ring on a stretcher.

Lerena wins farcical world title fight

By Ron Jackson

In what was a farcical fight for a world title fight and in one of the poorest performances by a foreign fighter in South Africa in many years, Sefen Seferi from Albania was stopped in the third round by South Africa’s Kevin Lerena, who retained his IBO cruiserweight belt for the fifth time, at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Saturday night.

All credit to Lerena (90.20kg) who came out aggressively at the opening bell but in reality there was little response from Seferi (89.30kg) who fought with his gloves held up to face as he pushed out some tentative lefts and rights that missed the champion.
