By Joe Koizumi

WBA#2/WBC#3/IBF#3/WBO#3 highly world-rated veteran Tetsuya Hisada (32-9-2, 19 KOs), 107.75, successfully made the fifth defense of his Japanese 108-pound belt as he dropped less experienced challenger Akihiro Toya (8-5, 1 KO), 107.75, with a vicious left hook midway in round five and pounded out a unanimous decision (97-92 twice, 98-92) over ten lopsided rounds on Friday in Osaka, Japan.

Hisada, 34, scored twelve wins in a row since his last setback to Kenta Sugimoto by a split duke in March 2015. Toya, 23, kept moving around to avert the champ’s onslaught, which might be partly successful since he could survive the overmatched crack at the national belt. The jubilant champ Hisada said, “I’d like to have a shot at any of world belts next year.”

The fight headlined a six-bout card staged by Kings Promotions before another full house.
Carto14
Carto is perhaps Philly’s most popular rising star, and each of his fights are always packed with a noisy band of loyal Carto-shirt-wearing fans who scream with delight at every punch he lands and seem completely oblivious to the shots that land on him in return. Nothing stems the excitement of seeing their hot prospect ply his skills. True love can be like that. Certainly Carto gives them plenty to love, but on Friday night he also gave his fans much to turn a blind-eye to. Continue reading “Carto still undefeated”

Soto Karass turns back the clock, defeats Macias

By David Robinett at ringside

In a stunning upset in the main event at Fantasy Springs Casino Resort in Indio, California, old warhorse Jesus Soto Karass (29-13-4, 18 KOs) earned his first win since 2013, outlasting the younger, previously undefeated Neeco Macias (17-1, 10 KOs) in a ten-round super welterweight bout by majority decision, 95-95, 96-94, 97-93.

Macias, one of the more locally popular Southern California fighters, whose fans often sport signs and masks in honor of his moniker “the Rooster,” wasted no time shifting into high gear, rushing Soto Karass into the corner at the opening bell and essentially staying there, trading punches for the next ten rounds. As he always has, Soto Karass was more than happy to oblige, returning fire with his back to the corner or ropes for the entire fight. Although it was fun and dramatic, it was not a total free for all, as both fighters kept their punches short and took as much time slipping and avoiding punches as throwing them early on. Soto Karass appeared to have the edge throwing the heavier punches though, as well as showing the greater ring discipline by occasionally stepping back or to the side to create more space for his punches. Ultimately though, each round was essentially a carbon copy of the previous round, the only difference being which corner the two fighters would station themselves before trading punches.
