Shimomachi keeps Japanese youth 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Local prospect Toshiki Shimomachi (12-1-2, 8 KOs), 121.75, impressively retained his Japanese youth super-bantam belt by scoring a well-received stoppage of previously unbeaten Hiroki Hanabusa (8-1-3, 3 KOs), 122, at 1:59 of the fifth round in a scheduled eight on Saturday in Hirakata city, Osaka prefecture, Japan. The 5’10.5” taller lefty Toshiki took the initiative, utilizing his southpaw jabs to the coming target to pile up points steadily. The youth champ connected with a vicious left to the midsection and had him down on all fours in agony. Upon the resumption of the bout Shimomachi, two years his senior at 23, furiously swarmed over the fading foe to prompt the referee’s intervention.

Former Japanese welter ruler Ryota Yada (20-6, 17 KOs), 146.5, floored less experienced Takuya Fujii (7-6, 3 KOs), 146.5, with a solid right in the end of the fourth round and had him unable to respond to the bell to deck a fine TKO win at 0:02 of the fifth in a scheduled eight. The loser had the ankle sprained upon his visit to the deck, which subsequently caused his surrender on the stool.

IBF#14 Japanese 115-pound champ Kenta Nakagawa (19-3-1, 12 KOs), 115, kept his national belt on a unanimous technical decision (88-84 twice, 88-83) over Yuta Matsuo (15-5-2, 8 KOs), 114.5, at 1:55 of the ninth round in a scheduled ten on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.

Having dethroned then world-rated Takayuki Okumoto by an upset decision in Osaka last December, the stylish upright southpaw Kenta took the initiative against the game willing mixer from the outset, utilizing his speed and skills to a great extent. After the fifth, the open scoring system indicated Nakagawa leading on points: 49-46, 48-47 twice. The ninth saw each suffer such a bad cut on an accidental butt—Nakagawa from the left eyebrow and Matsuo from the forehead—that the referee halted the proceedings and then wisely took the technical decision.

Ranked #1 by the WBC and WBO at junior lightweight, Valdez dropped Velez in round five and and twice in round ten. Time was 2:23.

“Miguel Berchelt is the fight I want. He has the WBC title at 130 pounds,” said Valdez. “I want the WBC title. Miguel and I would make for a great fight. I never stop learning. I will go back to the gym and continue to improve. I’m in a great rhythm with my trainer, Eddy Reynoso.”

“Velez was everything I expected, a tough warrior who fought his heart out. I commend him for a great performance and a great fight.”

Unbeaten super middleweight knockout sensation Edgar Berlanga (14-0, 14 KOs), who has knocked out all 14 foes in the first round, knocked out Eric Moon (11-3, 6 KOs) in 62 seconds.

“We prepared to go rounds, but I got him hurt and got him out of there,” said Berlanga. “I still have so much room to grow as a fighter. The power is there, but I will show everyone that I am a well-rounded fighter. The knockout streak is cool, but there is more to me than first-round knockouts.”

Former junior featherweight world champion Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe (21-2, 15 KOs), on the comeback trail following back-to-back defeats to Emanuel Navarrete, scored an eighth round TKO over two-time world title challenger Chris “The Hitman” Avalos (27-8, 20 KOs) in a featherweight battle.
